WASHINGTON – US Navy divers were working to locate portions of the debris from the Chinese “spy” balloon thatdefence officials said on Sunday.

On Saturday, President Joe Biden said that he had told Pentagon officials to shoot down the balloon, and that they “said to me, let’s wait until the safest place to do it.” Still, Navy divers will have to contend with cold water temperatures during the recovery effort. The defence official said that once all the debris is collected, the Pentagon will hand it over to be studied by various federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies.

“The idea that we were going to let this go all across America, a spy balloon complete its spy mission, before we shot it down, I’m afraid is an embarrassment to the United States, not an embarrassment to the Chinese.”
