Seymour Hersh does it again: “”How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline”

February 8, 2023


Victoria Nuland testifying at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing in late January:

“Like you, I am, and I think the Administration is, very gratified to know that Nord Stream 2 is now, as you like to say, a hunk of metal at the bottom of the sea.”


Within twelve hours of President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech, Seymour Hersh published an article claiming that it was the President that orchestrated a U.S. directed plan in close cooperation with Norway and to a lesser degree, Sweden and Denmark, to blow up the Nord Stream II pipeline … and then blame the Russians for doing it, which never made sense to anyone with even a quarter of a brain (but played well with a population fixated on the early stages of the U.S. football season). The German Prime Minister, Olaf Scholtz was also in on and at least aware of the plan to blow up the pipeline, which would have, and has had, serious consequences on Germany’s future economic prospects

Any of the few remaining possibilities of U.S.-Russian reconciliation, of a negotiated settlement to the Ukraine war (which I support) are that much more unlikely with the publication of Seymour Hersh’s blistering piece … “How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline”.

I urge all friends to read the article – you can find it I am certain through a number of sources.

Of course the Biden Administration denies the validity of it. That is there standard response, nothing unusual and it can be expected that Hersh is about to come under a Julian Assange-like fire with efforts to suppress the piece wherever it pops up. But I have little doubt that whatever the Administration and the mainstream media does to repress the article that it will be a kin to “Hersh’s shot heard round the world”.

There will be no way to stop its circulation.

My mind, for some reason, -wonder why – goes back to the assassination of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard leader Soleimani, one consequence of which, poorly reported in the main stream media here, is the targeting of U.S. military bases in the Middle East that continues to this day. Think there will not be consequences, a Russian response, to the blowing up of Nord Stream II … well, as the saying goes, there is a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you … I don’t know what they will be of course. And I wonder what the fall out will be in to German Prime Minister Olaf Scholtz who was, according to Hersh, told about the operation well before it happened and gave his OK? Norway, Sweden and Denmark were complicit with Norway being up to its neck in this operation

    “There is something rotten in Denmark”, but its origins are on the banks the Potomac.
