Seymour Hersh, Pulitzer Prize journalist who exposed the My Lai Massacre during the Vietnam War, has published an article claiming that the U.S. Navy is responsible for the bombing of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline last year. The report claims that Navy divers planted bombs on the pipelines during a military exercise and then later remotely detonated them. White House spokesperson Adrienne Watson said that the report was “false and complete fiction” despite the fact that before Russia invaded Ukraine, Biden said “there will no longer be a Nord Stream 2” if Russia violated Ukraine’s border.  Some European officials seem to agree with the report while others think that Russia may have destroyed its own pipelines.
