Retired Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal made this disclosure in a secretly recorded conversation obtained by Valuetainment Media. The four-star general led the Joint Special Operations Command in the mid-2000s, and was later known as the commanding officer of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan. However, McChrystal was relieved of his duties as ISAF commander after his comments critical of the Obama administration came to light.
The conversation began with McChrystal discussing Russia and its President Vladimir Putin. He remarked: "There's no obvious better solution than Russia. I think Putin ought to go, but there's nobody that I'm aware of standing on the wings."
A man then asked the four-star general about his opinion of the bombing of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines. The pipelines supplying liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Russia to the rest of Europe were destroyed in September 2022. Multiple nations – including Russia, Ukraine, the U.S., the U.K. and Poland – were accused of orchestrating the attack.
McChrystal answered that he and his son, who worked at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), believe neither Moscow nor Kyiv was responsible for the attack as many had initially suspected. Instead, he proposed that the sabotage may have been orchestrated by nations with interest in LNG – Washington foremost among them.
"My son is the leader of the energy team at DIA," the general remarked. "He didn't think that the Russians did it. He didn't think that the Ukrainians did it either. There are people who benefited from it, and that was people who produced natural gas around the world."
"So if you really want to get conspiracies, the U.S. made more money off that deal than anybody else. That's because we were huge beneficiaries and we changed our policy. We started providing LNG overseas and, you know."
While McChrystal's remarks insinuated Washington's involvement in the attack, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh directly pointed his fingers at U.S. President Joe Biden as the culprit.
Back in March, Hersh told the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. that Biden made the decision to blow up the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines. According to the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, the chief executive was of the opinion that doing so would give him a better chance of securing a second term.
"He did it. I'm telling you, he did it," Hersh said. "The Biden game is to wait it out and never say yes." (Related: "I'm telling you, he did it": Seymour Hersh blames Biden for Nord Stream attack.)
According to the journalist, Biden made the decision in January 2022 to "see if we can find a way to blow up … those pipelines and put [the Russians] back in the dark ages." He continued: "I think Biden also saw beating up Russia as a ticket. [John F.] Kennedy is a classic example. Presidents always did well politically in wars."
A month before, Hersh published a report asserting that the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines were destroyed by the U.S. as part of a covert operation. According to Hersh's sources for his February report, U.S. Navy divers planted the explosives on the pipelines in June 2022. The explosives, planted under the guise of the BALTOPS 2022 exercise conducted by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), were detonated three months later in September 2022 with a remote signal sent by a sonar buoy.
One source told Hersh that the plotters knew that the covert operation was an "act of war." Some in the Department of State and the Central Intelligence Agency even warned: "Don't do this. It’s stupid and will be a political nightmare if it comes out."
Unfortunately, Biden didn't listen and continued on with his plan. Contrary to his claim, Russia wasn't sent back to the dark ages. Western Europe suffered the consequences instead, being cut off from cheaper and more reliable LNG from Russia.
