The United States destroyed Russia’s Nord Stream pipelines in the Baltic Sea in September last year after a covert operation to plant explosives that President Joe Biden could detonate when he wanted, investigative reporter Seymour Hersh revealed yesterday.
A source with deep knowledge of the covert operation disclosed the details for the former New York Times reporter. Hersh did not name his source.
“Last June, the Navy divers, operating under the cover of a widely publicized mid-summer NATO exercise known as BALTOPS 22, planted the remotely triggered explosives that, three months later, destroyed three of the four Nord Stream pipelines, according to a source with direct knowledge of the operational planning,” Hersh reported.
So Biden wasn’t kidding when he and a top diplomat threatened to destroy the pipelines. And frighteningly, if Hersh is right, Biden committed an act of war against a nuclear power.
