We now know who blew up the Nord Stream pipelines, and it shouldn’t be a surprise to any of us. The corporate media tried very hard to convince us that the Russians were behind the sabotage when it originally happened, but that didn’t make any sense at all. It took 15 years to build the Nord Stream pipelines, and the total cost ultimately surpassed 20 billion dollars. So why would the Russians blow up pipelines that they had invested so much to construct and that were so critical to their own national economy? Sadly, many Americans unquestionably believed the narrative that was being pushed by the Biden administration, but now we have learned that it was the Biden administration that was actually behind the attack.
Legendary journalist Seymour Hersh has just published an extremely detailed article entitled “How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline” in which he lays out precisely what happened. If you are not familiar with Hersh, the following is some good background information about him from Wikipedia…
Hersh first gained recognition in 1969 for exposing the My Lai Massacre and its cover-up during the Vietnam War, for which he received the 1970 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. During the 1970s, Hersh covered the Watergate scandal for The New York Times and revealed the clandestine bombing of Cambodia. In 2004, he reported on the U.S. military‘s mistreatment of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison. He has also won two National Magazine Awards and five George Polk Awards. In 2004, he received the George Orwell Award.
As you can see, Hersh is not just another journalist.
He was winning awards long before many of you were even born.
And he would never go ahead with a story like this unless his source was rock solid.
According to Hersh’s source, the plan to blow up the pipelines came from a task force that was originally formed in December 2021…
In December of 2021, two months before the first Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine, Jake Sullivan convened a meeting of a newly formed task force—men and women from the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the CIA, and the State and Treasury Departments—and asked for recommendations about how to respond to Putin’s impending invasion.
Apparently Sullivan made it quite clear that the task force was supposed to “come up with a plan for the destruction of the two Nord Stream pipelines”, and it was also quite clear that Sullivan was “delivering on the desires of the President”…
What became clear to participants, according to the source with direct knowledge of the process, is that Sullivan intended for the group to come up with a plan for the destruction of the two Nord Stream pipelines—and that he was delivering on the desires of the President.
For the past two years, I have been repeatedly warning my readers that Jake Sullivan is a big time warmonger.
So it is not exactly a shock that he was directly involved in this decision.
According to Hersh’s source, those that were a part of this task force definitely understood that blowing up the Nord Stream pipelines would be “an act of war”…
Everyone involved understood the stakes. “This is not kiddie stuff,” the source said. If the attack were traceable to the United States, “It’s an act of war.”
So now that the fact that we have committed an “act of war” against Russia has been revealed for the whole world to see, how will the Russians respond?
Will they choose to strike back in some way?
Thanks to the foolishness of our leaders in Washington, we are now closer to nuclear war than ever before.
At the time when this attack was first being considered, there were a few officials from the CIA and the State Department that were warning about what would happen if the truth was ever revealed…
Throughout “all of this scheming,” the source said, “some working guys in the CIA and the State Department were saying, ‘Don’t do this. It’s stupid and will be a political nightmare if it comes out.’”
Now the truth has finally come out, and there will be very serious consequences.
Ultimately, Sullivan’s working group settled on a plan that involved the planting of underwater explosives.
And apparently those underwater explosives were put into place during the BALTOPS22 military exercises in June 2022…
In a compelling, 5,000-word report about the alleged attack, Hersh claims diving experts trained at the U.S. Navy Diving and Salvage Center in Florida planted the explosives.
The divers are said to have carried out the top secret and highly-dangerous operation during BALTOPS22, a series of military exercises in the Baltic Sea carried out by 16 NATO countries. The U.S. divers reportedly used the highly-publicized, 13-day event in June 2022 as cover for their top-secret mission.
The C4 explosives attached to the pipelines were fitted with sensors that enabled them to be detonated remotely at a later date, Hersh reports.
There was concern that it would be obvious that the U.S. was behind the attack if they were set off too quickly after the BALTOPS22 military exercises concluded.
So the explosives just sat on the pipelines until they were finally remotely detonated in late September…
On September 26, 2022, a Norwegian Navy P8 surveillance plane made a seemingly routine flight and dropped a sonar buoy. The signal spread underwater, initially to Nord Stream 2 and then on to Nord Stream 1. A few hours later, the high-powered C4 explosives were triggered and three of the four pipelines were put out of commission. Within a few minutes, pools of methane gas that remained in the shuttered pipelines could be seen spreading on the water’s surface and the world learned that something irreversible had taken place.
When asked about Hersh’s bombshell story, the White House responded by calling it “completely and utterly false”…
A spokesman for the White House said the report is ‘false and complete fiction’. A spokesman for the CIA said: ‘This claim is completely and utterly false.’
But what else can they do?
If the Biden administration admits the truth, it is likely that Biden will be impeached.
Needless to say, the Russians were exceedingly interested in this report, and they are demanding answers…
Russia’s Foreign Ministry says the Hersh report reveals new facts that must be answered to, however, with spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stressing, “We have repeatedly stated Russia’s position on the involvement of the United States and NATO, noting that they did not hide it, bragging to the whole world about their intention to destroy the civilian infrastructure through which Europe received Russian energy resources.”
If the Russians had attacked us in such a way, the American people would be crying out for revenge.
And rightfully so.
The recklessness of our leaders has pushed us to the brink of nuclear war, and as I discussed in a previous article, the United States is definitely not prepared for such a conflict.
Sadly, most Americans don’t even realize what is going on.
Elon Musk was quite correct when he observed that “most are oblivious to the danger”…
Tesla founder Elon Musk warned that “most are oblivious to the danger” of World War 3 as the conflict in Ukraine continues to escalate.
The comment was in response to a speech by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to the General Assembly on Monday during which he expressed his fear that humanity was marching toward a “wider war” with its “eyes wide open”.
But over in Russia the story is completely different.
The Russians believe that they are now engaged in an existential conflict with the United States, and there is constant talk about the possibility of nuclear war on Russian television.
When it finally happens, nobody will be able to say that they weren’t warned.
Over the past two years, I have been relentlessly warning my readers that Joe Biden and his all-star team of warmongers were going to push things way too far.
Now the truth about the attack on the Nord Stream pipelines has finally come out, and nothing will ever be the same after this.
