Nord Stream Sabotage
Ex-CIA Analyst Says Mainstream Media Killed Nord Stream Bombing Story
Last week, Pulitzer Prize-winning US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh published a report on his blog saying that US navy divers, during NATO Baltops exercises in the summer of 2022, planted explosives to destroy the Nord Stream pipelines, which Norway activated three months later. The report, based on a single unnamed source, added that US President Joe Biden had decided to sabotage Nord Stream after more than nine months of secret discussions with the national security team.
On September 26, 2022, the blasts occurred at three of the four strings of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 underwater pipelines built to carry a combined 110 billion cubic meters of Russian gas to Europe annually.
