Journalist Hersh said he knew a lot more about the Nord Stream bombing than he wrote about

The legendary American journalist, Seymour Hersh, 85, in a zoom interview with the Austrian newspaper eXXpressTV, confirmed that everything he wrote about the explosion of the Russian Nord Stream gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea is a true story, confirmed by documents and sources in the special services.

“I know I wrote the truth,” Hersh said.

Hersh clarified that he “has worked with the special services” for half a century and knows first hand the events, meetings and instructions on Nord Stream, but is obliged to defend his interlocutors, his sources of information.

“I know a lot more about it than I want to say. But I have to protect people who talk to me,” Hersh admitted.

He also told reporters that, according to his information, “US Navy divers attached explosive devices to the Nord Stream gas pipeline on the orders of the US President”, and that the detonation plan “was developed by a task force of the CIA” with the approval of US President Joe Biden.

In a conversation with the Austrian edition, Hersh referred to the events in Ukraine. He noted that he “doesn’t expect Kiev to win”. And he expressed the opinion that “Russia will win this war”.

Recall that on February 8, Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh published the results of a journalistic investigation into the Nord Stream explosion and cited evidence that US Navy divers with the support of Norwegian specialists laid down bombs under a gas pipeline at sea during the Baltops exercise in June 2022.

Journalist Hersh says he knows a lot more about the Nord Stream bombing than he first wrote on Current Articles.
