(CBS)If the balloon was brought down over land, the debris could have covered a 20-mile-by-20-mile space, said Lt. Gen. Douglas Sims, the director for operations of the Joint Staff.

"Although Alaska is in places not as inhabited as other places, it is inhabited. And without being able to clear that we wouldn't do that in combat," Sims told senators.

"We think before we shoot. And in this case, we thought before we shot," Sims said later. "Once you shoot, you can't take it back."

The U.S. is continuing to collect debris from the ocean nearly a week after the balloon was shot down. Senior FBI officials familiar with the operation said bad weather could extend the collection process. The Navy has weighted down debris still on the ocean floor to prevent it from being moved by the rough seas, a U.S. official said.

A U.S. official said underwater pictures of the debris field show the wreckage remarkably intact given its fall from 60,000 feet.

    And in that, they gave China exactly what they wanted. Clear communications eavesdropping within our nuclear facilities including our ICBM fields, and the B-52/ B1/ B2 bases. Also our QRF capabilities throughout North America. It shows they can listen to our communication from 60,000'. AND it shows we proved ourselves incapable of stopping them. They are testing hypersonic missiles to be launched off of these "weather balloons."

    They are also gathering information from the vast acres of farms they now own. Soil, rain, intel information all go back to China.

    "Man in the High Tower", here we come. Just different countries owning us.

    It was a footdragger move to give them everything they wanted. Then to call it a "win" is plain stupid.
