Nord Stream Sabotage Was CIA, US Navy Covert Op: Seymour Hersh Bombshell Prompts White House Response

ZeroHedge: Famed journalist and Pulitzer prize winner Seymour Hersh, who for decades was a star reporter writing for The New York Times and New Yorker, on Wednesday published a new bombshell as his first Substack post, prompting a quick White House response

After conducting his own investigation into who sabotaged the Nord Stream pipelines via a series of underwater blasts on Sept. 26, Hersh has concluded the United States blew up the Russia-to-Germany natural gas pipeline as part of a covert operation under the guise of the BALTOPS 22 NATO exercise.

Hersh, relying on unnamed national security sources, describes months of discussions and back-and-forth involving the Biden White House, CIA, and Pentagon. The report says planning was in the works all the way back to December 2021, with a special task force formed under the aegis of US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.

“The Navy proposed using a newly commissioned submarine to assault the pipeline directly. The Air Force discussed dropping bombs with delayed fuses that could be set off remotely. The CIA argued that whatever was done, it would have to be covert. Everyone involved understood the stakes,” the report, entitled How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline reads.

“The Biden Administration was doing everything possible to avoid leaks as the planning took place late in 2021 and into the first months of 2022,” it continues.

As momentum gained to proceed with a covert sabotage attack, “Over the next few weeks, members of the CIA’s working group began to craft a plan for a covert operation that would use deep-sea divers to trigger an explosion along the pipeline,” Hersh writes.

But there was significant push back within the intelligence community, but any reservations were overcome in the lead-up and aftermath of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. MORE

  1. @Joe6 – agree again – what better way to create a new world order than to instigate old world chaos. The globalist oligarchs are making their move.

  2. I watched a YouTube video a couple weeks ago showing a high level Russian military guy testifying in front of their parliament about launching nukes on America. His testimony was basically most of America side with Russia. America has essentially been taken over from with in by rogue operatives that want to see it’s destruction. We should give America time to get their country back because the Russians and the American Populous actually have a lot in common. I book market so I could share it later. I went back four hours later and it was taken down. Which in my mind gives it’s authenticity lots of credibility.

  3. “Asked for comment, 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.”
    well…there it is. they admitted it

  4. Stating the obvious again. A thermal nuclear war would give the Biden Crime Family a lot of cover. They have everything to gain from it while millions of people die.

  5. I Don’t believe this claim in the least bit, complete garbage propaganda from people who hate America & just want to burn it all down. F’n losers who have no proof to back their shit claims up.

  6. From a 2013 post: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh savages the US media for failing to challenge the White House on a whole host of issues. Hersh added that the Obama administration habitually lies but they continue to do so because the press allows them to get away with it…..”

    “It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama]. The republic’s in trouble, they lie about everything, lying has become the staple…….”

    Same shit, different day.

  7. I thought that the Brits did it – isn’t that intercepted message from then PM Liz Truss stating “it is done” that led to her resignation ( firing) referring to the Brit sabotage ? maybe I’m incorrect. I dunno.

  8. I’ve been following this sport for a while now and conspiracy theorists are leading with a record of 277-0.

  9. There were likely 220,000 to 330,000 metric tons of methane released from Nord Stream gas explosion. This makes Biden the most destructive person toward the International Green Energy Plan. Biden’s carbon footprint is huge. What does Green Energy Traitor Commissar Kerry Have to say about Biden’s carbon emissions?

    After Threatening to blow the pipeline, then admitting it, now that the story comes out, they are denying they had anything to do with shutting down the Nord Stream gas pipeline.

    Who do we believe?
    Famed journalist and Pulitzer prize winner Seymour Hersh or the Biden White House?
    Who has a verified track record of lying to the American people?

  10. Step 1: “This is a lie.”

    Step 2: “We can neither confirm nor deny.”

    Step 3: “Yeah, we f-cking did it. What are you gonna do about it?”

  11. Why on Earth would Russia blow up their own money-making asset?
    Who but the US or UK have the deep sea capability to git r done?
    Who but a NATO ally would be allowed to lurk deep in the North Sea without major alarms sounded?
    Truss, Blinken, Shitpants are the stupidest and most obvious liars.
    Cui bono? How better to keep the EU sheep herded away from Russian energy??

  12. I had read when it happened that a P-8 Poseidon had left the US flown over the pipeline area and returned to the US during that time period….having to do multiple aerial refuelings.

    I thought that was very devious and very suspicious.

  13. German substack writer eugyppius has interesting comments about Hersh’s article, particularly pointing out that it is incomplete. Hersh’s account doesn’t deal at all with the fact that there were two different pipeline areas blown up, several miles and 17 hours apart.

    Eugyppius is NOT saying Hersh is wrong, just that the story has holes.

    See for yourself:

  14. WoodyD,

    Exactly, but same girl not guy. The half black Keyan queer is a mere figurehead just like the Pedo.

    Valarie Jarrett runs the Uniparty for the global cabal with Soros financing everything.

    Our federal government and blue state governments are totally subsumed and work for the deep state.

    95% of the Alphabet agencies and now over 50% of the military especially the upper echelons are globalist puppets.

    Our entire government apparatus consists of traitors.
