Biden admits he sent the military to shoot down objects that were most likely weather balloons. pic.twitter.com/KMin2zaPDX

Actually, there is enough evidence that it was a group of high school students in a science club.
The Northern Illinois Bottlecap Balloon Brigade (NIBBB) lost their weather balloon over Alaska in the area an F-22 shot down a mysterious “object” in the sky.
From Aviation Week:
The club’s silver-coated, party-style, “pico balloon” reported its last position on Feb. 10 at 38,910 ft. off the west coast of Alaska, and a popular forecasting tool—the HYSPLIT model provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)—projected the cylindrically shaped object would be floating high over the central part of the Yukon Territory on Feb. 11. That is the same day a Lockheed Martin F-22 shot down an unidentified object of a similar description and altitude in the same general area.
There are suspicions among other prominent members of the small, pico-ballooning enthusiasts’ community, which combines ham radio and high-altitude ballooning into a single, relatively affordable hobby.
“I tried contacting our military and the FBI—and just got the runaround—to try to enlighten them on what a lot of these things probably are. And they’re going to look not too intelligent to be shooting them down,” says Ron Meadows, the founder of Scientific Balloon Solutions (SBS), a Silicon Valley company that makes purpose-built pico balloons for hobbyists, educators and scientists.
Politico has reported that the FBI did visit the club but did not respond to their request for comment.
Biden used a $12 million fighter jet to take down a $12 weather balloon.
Well that was about the most useless update I’ve ever seen. ZERO new information, no updates on debris, and vague promises of new “parameters” from Biden
This is the opposite of transparency after waiting multiple days to update the American people
