Post Military Spokesman Denies Claims that U.S. Sabotaged Nord Stream Pipeline

Military Spokesman Denies Claims that U.S. Sabotaged Nord Stream Pipeline
By: Eric Lendrum - AG News 02-20-23

On Sunday, the spokesman for the National Security Council (NSC), John Kirby, formally denied the viral accusations that the United States covertly sabotaged the Russian-owned Nord Stream pipeline last year.

According to Politico, Kirby said in a “Fox News Sunday” interview that the claim is “a completely false story” with “no truth to it.”

“Not a shred of it. It is not true,” Kirby continued insisting with host Shannon Bream. “The United States, and no proxies of the United States had anything to do with that, nothing.”

The claims were made by longtime journalist Seymour Hersh, who published his allegations on Substack and cited only one anonymous source as his “proof” that the story was true. Hersh has focused on sensational stories that depict the United States military in a negative light, previously reporting on alleged atrocities committed in Vietnam and later writing about so-called “torture” of Islamic terrorists in U.S. military prisons. He has also disputed the official story regarding the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan back in 2011.

In September of 2022, two underwater pipelines named Nord Stream I and Nord Stream II were fatally damaged by sudden explosions, the causes of which have not yet been determined. The pipelines, which run under the Baltic Sea, connect Russia to Germany and supplied a steady stream of fuel to Germany and surrounding European countries.

The pipeline’s destruction represented a major blow to Russia’s ability to outsource fuel and other forms of energy, which has been one of its main advantages since it first launched its war with Ukraine in February of last year. Some have accused Russia of sabotaging its own pipeline so that it could subsequently blame Europe or the United States, in order to rally more support behind its cause in Ukraine.
When Bream further asked Kirby about whether or not Congress would have to be informed had the U.S. been responsible for such an operation, Kirby responded with by saying that “we keep Congress informed appropriately of things both classified and unclassified.”

Personal note: Whose to say who really did this event? What would the US or Ukraine
gain by blowing up the gas line - & why would they? Russia built the line - whose to
say it wasn't jury-rigged to blow should events sour between the two countries.
It was to Russia's advantage to cut off their gas to heat Ukraine homes. It's not
unlike Putin to not purposely rig that jury-rig the line should the events as such
currently underway - would greatly compromise Ukraine & its people.
Putin built the bridge and installed the underwater gas pipe line. It's very possible
that Putin had them jury rigged an explosive device - that could be triggered
should events with Ukraine sour - of which were already underway - and as such
they were not favoring his subservient orders.
They (Ukraine) need's to blow up his private armored railroad lines that he travels
on. I'm sure he'd appreciate that and get his attention real quick. But its only
a surmised notation - but not totally out of the realm of suddenly happening!?
The old tit-for-tat operation - may still be on table - at some time in the near
future. Just maybe they could take him out as well. Russia would know doubt
not miss him. But another may step up to take his place.
Here's another link you may want to read and view
its really interesting to long to post:

It's pretty interesting and several video discussions as well. I had to chuckle
when I read and watched the propaganda video's. The guy's a 110% a nut
Let me what you think about those Russia TV propagandist statements!

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
