Nord Stream sabotage redux

Seymour Hersh accuses the United States of blowing up the Nord Stream pipeline, and makes a very good case, blow by blow.

Last fall, CNAV reported on the sudden failure of the Nord Stream Pipeline. That pipeline brought natural gas from Russia to Germany. Everyone knew it was sabotage, and at least some accused the United States. Now reporter and historian Seymour Hersh accuses the United States Navy of the sabotage. Twitter reporter Kanekoa the Great is on the case, with links to Hersh’ article and to many other sources.

Nord Stream in review

On or about Monday, September 26, pressures in the Nord Stream Pipeline, under the Baltic Sea, dropped to zero. Then on the evening of September 27, we found out why. Three leaks had sprung in that pipeline, two in the original project (Nord Stream One) and one in the newer project (Nord Stream Two). Swedish and Danish seismologists said flatly that two explosions occurred on the Baltic Sea floor. The explosions happened several hours apart, and a large gas plume formed in the Baltic Sea. The Swedes ordered all ships to steer clear. Then Reuters and the Associated Press carried Swedish and Danish accusations, respectively, of sabotage.

The Washington Post accused the Russians of blowing up their own pipeline. National Review’s Jim Geraghty positively gloated over it. But Tucker Carlson accused the United States.

Radek Sikorski, Member of the European Parliament, accused the United States. No, not accused: thanked the USA for, in his view, striking at the enemy of the European Union. But now his thread has vanished. His account is still active, which indicates one thing: Radek Sikorski deleted his thread. Whether at the behest of the U.S. State Department or because he thought better of trumpeting that act, who knows? His content clearly shows him to be a war hawk and thoroughly anti-Russian. But perhaps it occurred to him, or someone told him, to hush-up American involvement.

Neither he nor any other anti-Russian partisan can hush it up any longer.

Sy Hersh weighs in

Actually, Matt Taibbi weighed in first, sharing this tweet at 7:15 a.m. yesterday morning.

Your editor, as “Declarations of Truth,” made the obvious observation:

One user professed surprise that Ukraine and NATO weren’t thanking the USA. Another user replied back that they were and are.

True, he offered no sources. But let’s not forget Radek Sikorski’s expressions of thanks – so if NATO wasn’t, the European Parliament was.

Another user flatly discounted the Sy Hersh article, because it cited an anonymous source. But that user, pressed for an answer on motive, opportunity and method, has yet to address those points.

Still another user observed that Sy Hersh says the Americans worked it out with the Norwegians.

That would explain why the cries of sabotage came from Sweden and Denmark but not Norway.

Then Kanekoa the Great dropped his seventeen-tweet thread. In it he covered more than the Nord Stream pipeline. He reviewed the full history of American involvement in Ukraine, including the Maidan Revolution of 2014. (He did not, however, address the suspicion of biological weapons development laboratories in Ukraine, with American funding, direction, and staff.)

The thread

Herewith the odd numbers:

Most of the reaction consisted of outrage, and worry about nuclear combat between America and Russia.

But at least one user expressed skepticism:

Besides all the videos Kanekoa shared, let’s consider Sy Hersh’s own statements on why the current administration disliked that pipeline. Or rather, why the Deep State did not like Nord Stream. Hersh observed correctly that the Biden administration did not want Germany to have cheap gas from Russia. But this same administration already planned to cut off cheap gas from the United States. So the real reason for American opposition to Nord Stream was the use of fossil fuels. The Deep State opposed the pipeline, then, because the globe is warming, the globe is warming!

Planning on how to destroy Nord Stream began in December 2021 – two months before the Russian special military operation. Then Biden issued this threat:

Nord Stream did move forward – and for that reason, so did the plan. And how did Norway come into it? By passing a new defense agreement extending American jurisdiction in key areas. And by lending their own naval support, especially under the sea. No wonder the Norwegians said nothing while the Swedes and Danes cried out!

Biden obviously carried out his threat. But Congress never once declared war. What will the new House of Representatives say to this?
