    Une opération secrète ordonnée par le président Joe Biden : c’est ainsi que les gazoducs Nord Stream 1 et 2 auraient été endommagés, avance le journaliste d’investigation américain Seymour Hersh dans un article qu’il a publié sur la plateforme d’autoédition Substack, le 8 février.

    En juin 2022, affirme-t-il, des plongeurs de la marine militaire des États-Unis auraient placé des explosifs C4 près de ces gazoducs reliant la Russie à l’Allemagne, en mer Baltique. Washington aurait trouvé un moyen de les déclencher à distance, en septembre.

      Blowing Holes in Seymour Hersh’s Pipe Dream

      On the surface Seymour Hersh’s story looks passable, but as you dig deeper it has more holes than the Nord Stream pipeline.

      It is often stated that people who lie have a tendency to add too much superfluous detail to their accounts. This attempt to “cover all bases” is in many cases what trips these people up. Extra details add extra points of reference that can be crosschecked and examined. In Hersh’s case, this is exactly what appears to have happened. On the surface level, the level of detail checks out to laymen or people without more niche knowledge of the subject matter mentioned. When you look closer though, the entire story begins to show massive glaring holes and specific details can be debunked.

      If the U.S. did conspire to destroy the Nord Stream pipeline, Hersh’s reporting has not proved that case. Hersh has, instead, made a very successful blog post that essentially transcribes a compelling story someone unknown to the general public told him.

      Hersch was asked by the Russian news agency TASS about the identity of his source. He told them that, “It’s a person, who, it seems, knows a lot about what’s going on.”
