The Nord Stream pipelines were destroyed last September by the US in a covert operation, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has claimed. The legendary reporter made the bombshell revelation in an article posted to his newly launched blog on Substack on Wednesday.
The explosives were planted at the pipelines back in June 2022 by US Navy divers under the guise of the BALTOPS 22 NATO exercise, Hersh reported, citing a source with direct knowledge of the operational planning.
The journalist noted that he had reached out to the White House and CIA for comment, with both firmly rejecting the claim that the US “took out” the pipelines as “utterly false.”
The bombs were detonated three months later on September 26 with a remote signal sent by a sonar buoy. The buoy was dropped near the Nord Stream pipelines by a Norwegian Navy P8 surveillance plane, according to the report.
The operation came to fruition following months of back-and-forth between the White House, CIA, and military, with officials focusing on how to leave no trace of US involvement in the attack. The planning process began back in December 2021, when a special task force was created with the direct participation 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 read.
The source told Hersh that everybody involved understood the operation was not some “kiddie stuff” but was actually an “an act of war.” Throughout “all of this scheming” certain officials urged the White House to drop the idea entirely.“Some working guys in the CIA and the State Department were saying, ‘Don’t do this. It’s stupid and will be a political nightmare if it comes out,’” according to the source.
Originally, the explosives were to have a 48-hour timer and were set to be planted by the end of BALTOPS22, Hersh reported, citing the same source. The two-day window, however, was ultimately deemed to be too close to the end of the exercise by the White House, which ordered the task force to come up with an on-demand method of detonating them. This ultimately turned out to be the sonar buoy.

The administration of President Joe Biden has been “focused” on jeopardizing the Nord Stream pipelines – initially through sanctions, and, ultimately, by direct sabotage – seeing it as key to swaying Europe to its cause amid the then-looming conflict in Ukraine, Hersh noted.
“As long as Europe remained dependent on the pipelines for cheap natural gas, Washington was afraid that countries like Germany would be reluctant to supply Ukraine with the money and weapons it needed to defeat Russia,” he wrote.

Moscow provided a similar take on the incident shortly after the blasts, branding them a “terrorist attack” and stating that the US was the nation that benefited most from it, by accelerating Europe’s attempts to wean itself off of Russian gas.
Throughout his career, Hersh has reported on numerous explosive stories, including war crimes by the US military and high-profile political scandals. Exposing the My Lai massacre by US troops in Vietnam scored the journalist the Pulitzer Prize in 1970. Other notable stories Hersh reported on include the Watergate scandal, the CIA illegal domestic spying, as well as the American military’s torture and abuse of detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

The flight tracking service Flightradar24 has confirmed US involvement in the Nord Stream gas pipeline bombing.
According to the service, “the consequences of the explosion on the Nord Stream gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea in the early morning of September 26 last year were observed by an American reconnaissance aircraft P-8A Poseidon.
According to the resource records, the plane flew in from the Atlantic, then, passing over Denmark, flew up to the island of Bornholm, after which it refueled in the air over Poland, and then, returning back, made a full circle over the explosion area, starting to descend.
The scout turned to the right and went away from the scene, gradually descending from a height of 7300 meters to 2200 meters, after which he turned off the transponder and disappeared from the radar.
Recall that the previously well-known American journalist, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1970, published the results of his own investigation , which indicate that US Navy divers planted explosives under Nord Stream in June last year, and Norway helped the United States in carrying out the entire operation.

“The war, therefore, if we judge it by the standards of previous wars, is merely an imposture. It is like the battles between certain ruminant animals whose horns are set at such an angle that they are incapable of hurting one another. But though it is unreal it is not meaningless. It eats up the surplus of consumable goods, and it helps to preserve the special mental atmosphere that a hierarchical society needs. War, it will be seen, is now a purely internal affair. In the past, the ruling groups of all countries, although they might recognize their common interest and therefore limit the destructiveness of war, did fight against one another, and the victor always plundered the vanquished. In our own day they are not fighting against one another at all. The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of the war is not to make or prevent conquests of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact.”
George Orwell 1984
“The very word ‘war’, therefore, has become misleading. It would probably be accurate to say that by becoming continuous war has ceased to exist. The peculiar pressure that it exerted on human beings between the Neolithic Age and the early twentieth century has disappeared and been replaced by something quite different. The effect would be much the same if the three super-states, instead of fighting one another, should agree to live in perpetual peace, each inviolate within its own boundaries. For in that case each would still be a self-contained universe, freed for ever from the sobering influence of external danger. A peace that was truly permanent would be the same as a permanent war. This — although the vast majority of Party members understand it only in a shallower sense — is the inner meaning of the Party slogan: War is Peace.”
If the Russians launch an ICBM, I hope they hit Washington, DC. That would be the biggest favor they could do for us.
I think the same for a Sarmat over Rome…
It’s an absolute certainty that the leak of information cited by Seymour Hersh in his story on the US sabotage of Nord Stream 1&2 came from the Pentagon. Representatives of the Joint Chiefs of Staff were at the meetings with the conspirators led by Blinken. As Col. Douglas McGregor says again and again, the top military echelons, those right below Milley, are opposed to this insane war. Hersh’s other source is a former top advisor to the Chief of Naval Operations, a Joint Chiefs member.
The military are disgusted and fed up with Biden’s warmongering/woke/kleptocracy. Let’s hope the Biden crime family is on its way out.
Obviously Veterans Today has a lot to say about this.
Thanks RichardC. Wise words…
But don’t forget the Weapons’ Lobby led by Lloyd Austin (former Raythoen advisor) who represents a third independent and powerful entity, even over Biden’s clan.
As we explained here…
