Veteran journalist Seymour Hersh published a bombshell expose of the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline, proving that the U.S. is the guilty party and that Norway was their accomplice.
Hersh spoke to unnamed sources who claimed to have had first-hand knowledge of the mission. He says that the mission was done by the U.S. Navy so that the Biden Administration could carry out the attack without Congressional approval. The report lays out who (the U.S. and Norway), why (to force Europe to support Ukraine and cross Russia), how (during Naval exercises in the Baltic), and when (summer of 2022). It is a thorough and important read.
The U.S. and Norway deny this of course but this is not the first time Hersh’s reporting was denied but turned out to be legitimate. Hersh’s reporting is the reason we know about the Mỹ Lai massacre in Vietnam and the Abu Ghraib prison scandal in Iraq.
We discussed this at length in Wednesday’s episode of Redacted.
