It’s almost impossible to walk into a store and find consumer products that are actually made in America. Even all the “American Pride” stuff at Walmart usually comes from China.
But China got hold of some western products for its spy balloon.
An alleged Chinese spy balloon that traversed the US had western-made components with English-language writing on them, members of Congress were told on Capitol Hill Thursday, people familiar with the matter said.
There are any number of English-speaking countries that are not the United States, but that sounds like China needed specialized off-the-shelf equipment and it’s quite likely we still have some firms making it. The next question will be whether there were any violations in exporting it to China and whether that door will be closed.
The presence of the components was described by several of the people, who declined to elaborate further on exactly which ones were Western-made
The more hesitant the Biden regime is to tell us, the more likely it is that we’re talking American components.
We’re part of the problem by exporting, outsourcing and working with China. That program has enabled the Communist enemy nation to significantly ramp up its capabilities while robbing us blind.
