A number of government officials have started to kick off the process of speaking out to try and temper the public expectations when it comes to the efforts to recover the debris from the numerous unidentified flying objects (UFOs) which were shot down from where they flew across the sky over North America.
The U.S. military has stated that its jets fired on and shot down one UFO out over Alaska this past Friday, then another in Canadian airspace on Saturday, with a final out over Lake Huron on Sunday.
Both the U.S. and Canada openly announced that they would be sending out full-scale retrieval operations so investigators could study and better understand what the objects actually were. Officials have issued warnings the entire time about how inhospitable the terrain and winter weather could be as it could make this much harder.
“I think it’s important to remind: the objects in Alaska and Canada are in pretty remote terrain — ice, wilderness, all of that — making it difficult to find them in winter weather,” expressed White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to the gathered press this past Monday. “And the object over Lake Huron now lies in what is probably very deep water.”
On Tuesday, however, officials were pointedly speaking out in doubt about whether these salvage missions will be able to find anything at all of the remains.
“If it can’t be recovered, it’s going to be extremely difficult to say with great certainty what these things were,” explained a senior official for the Biden administration to CNN on Tuesday morning.
One official from Canada issued a similar and equally cautious statement.
“We are working very hard to locate them, but there’s no guarantee that we will,” explained the spokesperson for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Sean McGillis.
“The terrain in the Yukon is rather treacherous right now so it could pose some significant challenges to us in terms of our recovery efforts. The same could be said about what’s taking place in Lake Huron, the marine conditions are also not conducive at the moment,” continued McGillis.
The UFOs flew at an altitude at which they would have been a severe danger to any civilian aircraft in the area and were possibly carrying out surveillance activities, explained officials. The Pentagon stated that these most recent flying objects were different from the one taken down on February 4th just off the coast of South Carolina. While U.S. officials have expressed that the object was a Chinese spy balloon, spokespeople for China stated that it was just a civilian research craft that was blown off course.
