Hersh: CIA Seeded Media With Cover Stories For Biden’s Nord Stream Pipeline Sabotage

The CIA planted fake news to cover up U.S. involvement in the Nord Stream pipeline’s destruction, claims Seymour Hersh.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh claims the CIA planted fake news in mainstream outlets to cover up the Biden administration’s responsibility for destroying the Nord Stream pipelines last year.

Concerns the pipelines were “sabotaged” circulated among some European government officials and users across the internet last September, after images released by the Danish military appeared to show geyser-like natural gas eruptions in the Baltic Sea.

The Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline systems were intended to transport natural gas from Russia to Europe, with each system being made up of two separate pipelines. Prior to the 2022 invasion of Ukraine, Biden made cryptic comments suggesting the pipeline would be terminated in the event of an armed conflict.

While mainstream sources were reticent to assign blame for the destruction, Hersh eventually went public with claims that the United States sabotaged the pipeline to favor its domestic energy exports and nullify Russia’s ability to pressure Europe in Ukraine by threatening to withhold its natural gas supply.

Following Hersh’s accusations, a rogue Ukrainian group was blamed, though skeptics have questioned how a Ukrainian cell without state backing could have had the training, maritime equipment, and explosives necessary to plant an underwater payload capable of destroying the pipelines.

This week, Hersh reaffirmed his allegations that Joe Biden ordered the destruction of the $11 billion pipeline and accused U.S. and German intelligence agencies of a running a Western media disinformation campaign to hide the American government’s culpability in the attack.

“It’s been six weeks since I published a report, based on anonymous sourcing, naming President Joe Biden as the official who ordered the mysterious destruction last September of Nord Stream 2, a new $11-billion pipeline that was scheduled to double the volume of natural gas delivered from Russia to Germany,” Hersh wrote.

“The story gained traction in Germany and Western Europe, but was subject to a near media blackout in the US. Two weeks ago, after a visit by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to Washington, US and German intelligence agencies attempted to add to the blackout by feeding the New York Times and the German weekly Die Zeit false cover stories to counter the report that Biden and US operatives were responsible for the pipelines’ destruction,” the journalist claimed.

Hersh in February published an expose that claimed that the CIA, under the order of Biden, sent U.S. Navy divers to the Baltic Sea to destroy the Russian gas pipelines.

The journalist noted that the CIA, in response to his story and in collaboration with German intelligence networks, seeded western media outlets with an “alternate version” of the story to “pulse the system” and steer public attention away from any U.S. involvement.

“I was told by someone with access to diplomatic intelligence that there was a discussion of the pipeline exposé and, as a result, certain elements in the Central Intelligence Agency were asked to prepare a cover story in collaboration with German intelligence that would provide the American and German press with an alternative version for the destruction of Nord Stream 2,” Hersh said.

“In the words of the intelligence community, the agency was ‘to pulse the system’ in an effort to discount the claim that Biden had ordered the pipelines’ destruction.”

    Biden needs to pay for the pipeline out of his own pocket. Let him sit in a Russian Gulag. The Biden family will go to hell for their misdeeds. FJB

    Can you imagine what would have happened if the one responsible for this crime was Trump?
    I’m still wondering when a news outlet will cover this event orchestrated by Biden and company.

    News media? Now that a joke. A bunch of hosts covering up Biden’s dirty deeds! I’m surprised? NOT! Unamerican news outlets kissing communist democrat’s party cover up destroying another pipe line to hurt the average citizen for power and money. America and Germany? Obama did the same thing. Germany listened to Obama to let illegals into their country and step all over Germany people’s rights. Now Germany does not have their own culture now. CIA the group who starts wars in other countries for money for corrupt people in Congress and to change the leaders in other countries so they can control them. CIA just another cartel but with backing from the American government. If hackers really wanted to help the world they would hack into Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Obama, Mitt Romney, John Kerry, Biden, Bush and many more traitors bank accounts and see who has control of these so called American people in government. Some hacker needs to take down Soros who is trying to destroy the world.
