President Biden confirmed that he ordered the shooting down of a Chinese spy balloon last Wednesday, but the military waited until Saturday to execute the mission safely over water. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin also acknowledged that the military waited until it could be done without undue risk to American lives. The President faced criticism from Republicans for the delay, but he has praised the U.S. aviators who successfully took down the balloon off the coast of South Carolina after the FAA issued a ground stop for flights in the area.
