Seymour Hersh: How America Took Out the Nord Stream Pipeline

The New York Times called it a “mystery,” but the United States executed a covert sea operation that was kept secret—until now

The U.S. Navy’s Diving and Salvage Center can be found in a location as obscure as its name—down what was once a country lane in rural Panama City, a now-booming resort city in the southwestern panhandle of Florida, 70 miles south of the Alabama border. The center’s complex is as nondescript as its location—a drab concrete post-World War II structure that has the look of a vocational high school on the west side of Chicago. A coin-operated laundromat and a dance school are across what is now a four-lane road.

The center has been training highly skilled deep-water divers for decades who, once assigned to American military units worldwide, are capable of technical diving to do the good—using C4 explosives to clear harbors and beaches of debris and unexploded ordnance—as well as the bad, like blowing up foreign oil rigs, fouling intake valves for undersea power plants, destroying locks on crucial shipping canals. The Panama City center, which boasts the second largest indoor pool in America, was the perfect place to recruit the best, and most taciturn, graduates of the diving school who successfully did last summer what they had been authorized to do 260 feet under the surface of the Baltic Sea.

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………

    Whether it’s opening our borders wide open for rapists, murderers, drug runners, human traffickers and gun runners, unleashed onto the American citizenry, or opening up our skies for spy balloons to gather top secret information over military installations, Biden is very clearly selling us out. No one of sane and sound mind would not be able to see that this puny little man is up to no good.

    What happened in Afghanistan was not a blunder, some mistake made by an incompetent imposter of a US President; it was sinister. To throw all of the Afghani’s who were working with the Americans straight to the wolves, creating a bloodbath in Kabul, with all US allied persons decapitated, blood all over the place, and hung from their necks in the public square for all the world to see, and then handing over tens of billions of dollars of US military equipment straight to the enemy, that’s, the enemy, is an act of treason.

    This evil little bastard, who was installed into the White House, like we’re some despotic third world country, by way of an obviously stolen election (not even up for debate, of course they stole the election, and everyone knows it – enough of the damn pretense already), has wreaked havoc across the board. What he ordered in his attack on the Nord Stream pipeline is indicative of his actions in a myriad of ways. And destroying that Russian pipeline, an act of war, begs the question of just who is in the right in the Russian/Ukrainian conflict. Underhandedness such as this calls into question everything we thought we knew about the situation over there.

    And when all of the liberal left of America are clamoring on one side of any issue, as they have in support of Zelensky, that is an automatic red flag. They are never collectively correct, about any damn thing. Perhaps Putin is not the monster he has been painted as. It could be that the monster is the one who orders such a, smarmy, sneaky attack that has reverberations and consequences that adversely affect the lives of millions of people.
