As Twitchy reported earlier, “Fusion Natasha” Bertrand reported for CNN that there had been three Chinese spy balloons that crossed the country while Donald Trump was president, but nobody knew until now.

How is that possible? Karine Jean-Pierre obviously wasn’t prepared for the question, but what about Gen. Glen VanHerck, head of NORAD?

VanHerck explained:

So those balloons, so every day as a NORAD commander it’s my responsibility to detect threats to North America. I will tell you that we did not detect those threats. And that’s a domain awareness gap that we have to figure out. But I don’t want to go in further detail.

The intel community, after the fact, I believe has been briefed already, assess those threats to additional means and made us aware of those balloons that were previously approaching North America or transited North America. I hope that answers your question.

Actually, that doesn’t answer our question. At all. Is he confirming Bertrand’s anonymously sourced story?

Are they really going to throw the intel community under the bus because the Chinese spy balloon made Biden look bad?

Why is anyone assuming this ridiculous scenario is true? Because of one anonymous official?
