Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

Seymour Hersh, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, has alleged U.S. Navy divers planted remotely triggered explosives that destroyed the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline last September.  In his report on Substack, Hersh claims the operation was carried out by the Navy under the cover of BALTOPS 22, a NATO maritime exercise.  On February 7, before Russia invaded Ukraine, Biden threatened that the Nord Stream 2 project would not move forward in the event of an attack.  He said, “If Russia invades — that means tanks or troops crossing the border of Ukraine, again — then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2.  We will bring an end to it.”
