Seymour Hersh is a renowned journalist who won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism in 1970 for breaking the story of the My Lai massacre, an incident in which US soldiers killed between three- and five-hundred unarmed civilians. He also reported on the US military’s torture of prisoners at Abu Ghraib, reporting which led to the White House administration (both parties) to begin falsely labeling him a “known fabricator” and dismissing his stories as “crap.”
Hersh recently broke another very important story, published on his substack, about the covert destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines. Yet his article was ignored by mainstream media who, instead, chose to distract the public with stories about UFOs.
Two pipelines – known as Nord Stream 1 – provided western Europe with cheap Russian gas for more than a decade. As Greg Reese, of Infowars, reports, these pipelines were seen by NATO as a threat to western dominance. Profits were shared with the Russian government and provided up to 45% of their annual budget.
A second pair [of pipelines], called Nord Stream 2, had been built but were not yet operational.
Reese reports that “NATO was concerned that as long as Europe remained dependent upon these pipelines, Germany would be reluctant to supply Ukraine with money and weapons to fight Russia. And so the Biden administration authorized Jake Sullivan to assemble a task force with members of the Biden White House, the CIA and the Pentagon to come up with a plan for the destruction of the pipelines. The operation was run by Victoria Nuland, Anthony Blinken and Jake Sullivan.
The Navy proposed using a submarine to assault the pipeline directly.
The Air Force proposed dropping bombs with delayed fuses.
And the CIA argued that whatever was done, it would have to be covert. Because if the attack was traced to the US then it would be an act of war.
In early 2022, right after the CIA reported to Sullivan that they had a plan, both Victoria Nuland and President Biden publicly threatened to bring an end to Nord Stream 2.”
Nuland stated: “If Russia invades Ukraine, one way or another, Nord Stream 2 will not move forward.”
Biden stated: “If Russia invades – that means, tanks or troops crossing the border of Ukraine again — then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2.”
According to Hersh’s source, this public announcement by Nuland and Biden meant that blowing up the pipeline no longer could be considered a covert option and, that being the case, that there was no longer a legal requirement to report their plans to Congress.
Reese reports in his video:
The Americans partnered with Norway, who had their own motivations for the destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines, which would allow them to sell more of their own natural gas to Europe.
In March 2022, members of the team flew to Norway to meet with the Norwegian Secret Service. The Norwegian Navy decided on a spot in the shallow waters of the Baltic Sea, a few miles off Denmark’s Bornholm Island, where the divers, operating from a Norwegian Alta Class Minehunter, would plant C4 charges, with concrete protective covers, on the four pipelines.
Divers were chosen from the US Navy’s Diving & Salvage Center in Panama City, which specializes in training deep-water divers to use C4 explosives, because they were Navy-only and not members of America’s Special Operations Command whose covert operations would need to be reported to Congress.
The mission was secretly embedded into an annual training exercise already scheduled for June 2022, known as “Baltic Operations 22” or BALTOPS 22, wherein the Panama City divers would place C4 explosives with a 48-hour timer attached.
But the White House then worried that triggering the explosion within two days of the well-publicized training exercise would make it obvious that America was responsible. So it was decided that the C4 would be triggered by a sonar buoy later dropped by plane.
The buoy would emit a sequence of unique low-frequency tonal sounds to trigger the explosives.
On September 26, 2022, a Norwegian Navy P8 surveillance plane dropped the sonar buoy. The signal spread underwater and a few hours later, the high-powered explosives were triggered and three of the four pipelines were put out of commission.
The Nordstream Explosion
According to Hersh’s National Security sources: “It was a beautiful cover story. . . It was a covert operation that placed experts in the field and equipment that operated on a covert signal.”
“The only flaw was the decision to do it.”
Hersh reported that the plotters knew the covert operation was an “act of war,” with some in the CIA and State Department warning, “Don’t do this. It’s stupid and will be a political nightmare if it comes out.”
In an update to the story, on February 11, Hersh was interviewed by Radio War Nerd in which he slammed the mainstream media for criticizing him personally rather than investigating the story, stating: “It’s amazing to me how they fall in line, my colleagues,” said Hersh, referring to the New York Times – who called the Nord Stream explosion “a mystery” – and the Washington Post.
Hersh stated that when asked for comment about the covert operation, Adrienne Watson, a White House spokesperson, said in an email, “This is false and complete fiction.” Tammy Thorp, a spokesperson for the Central Intelligence Agency, similarly wrote: “This claim is completely and utterly false.”
All of which confirms what readers of NoFakeNews know already: Don’t believe anything coming out of mainstream/corporate media, and don’t believe anything coming out of the White House.
This terroristic act by the United States (which, according to The Global Times was planned as far back as 2021 — long before the Russia-Ukraine conflict) was unconscionable and immoral, and it must not be ignored or forgotten. And the fact that Washington was not concerned about whether or not to blow up the pipelines, but with how they would hide the evidence, is shameful.
And the corporate media’s lying about it — or outright ignoring it — is equally shameful.
The truth needs to be exposed and the US needs to explain, and take responsibility for, its actions.
