Biden Gave Order to Shoot Chinese Spy Balloon on Wednesday

President Joe Biden said he ordered the Pentagon on Wednesday to down the Chinese spy balloon as soon as possible "without doing damage to anyone on the ground." The military decided the best window was on Saturday while it was over the Atlantic within US territorial waters, capping days of waiting as it traversed the country. An Air Force jet shot down the balloon over the Atlantic Ocean. Critics say Biden waited too long to give the order.
