Exclusive interview with U.S. investigative journalist Seymour Hersh
In CGTN’s exclusive interview with American investigative journalist and political writer Seymour Hersh, reporter Liu Xu explores what’s behind Hersh’s recent article on the Nord Stream blast, entitled “How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline.”
Hear what Hersh thinks about the lack of U.S. media coverage and the non-existent investigation by the White House into the explosive claims in Hersh’s article. What’s ahead for the controversial journalist, who now publishes his works on the platform Substack?
Hersh’s article, published February 8, 2023, claims that during the BALTOPS 22 maritime exercise, U.S. Navy divers, operating under the cover of the exercise, planted remotely triggered explosives that destroyed three of the four Nord Stream pipelines, citing an anonymous source with direct knowledge of the operation.
Hear from a former advisor to the Pentagon, Theodore Postol, on how he became convinced of the validity of a story from an anonymous U.S. government source that became the basis for Seymour Hersh's article “How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline.”
Hersh approached Postol, now a professor emeritus of Science, Technology, and International Security at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, while putting together the comprehensive article that claims that U.S. Navy divers were responsible for the deep sea planting of remotely triggered explosives that destroyed the Nord Stream pipelines.
