Dear Marianna Spring (age 27) and experienced colleagues at BBC Verify we seek the truth and need your help.
On the internet we have discovered a quite astonishing allegation against esteemed and highly respected US President Biden. We are deeply concerned that this article published in part below may be one of those terrible conspiracy theories you have warned us about. Either that or close to the truth and thus an act of war against both Germany and Russia.
Unlike BBC Verify we don’t have vast resources of £billions in BBC licence fee funds nor legions of brilliant young minds to perform fact checking every day therefore we seek your assistance, resources and clarification of this complex accusation in the pursuit of truth vs disinformation.
On the KISS principle we boil the matter down to …
Did the US military blow the Nordstream pipelines to smithereens and did Joe Biden as Commander in Chief order this act of war ?
True or False ? Inquiring minds would very much like to know.
Below is the whistleblower testimony and accusation in reproduced in part.
Quite frankly given the lamentable reputation of all things BBC as yet we don’t trust BBC Verify to be an honest information broker or bother to assist so our readers will likely have to make up their own minds.
Attribution of responsibillity in this matter does open up the delightfull issue of liability and the possibility a class action seeking redress for costs incurred e.g Last winters sky high energy bills
I am writing to you as a concerned citizen of the world, wishing for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Ukraine. My identity is not of importance. What matters is the sharing of my story so that the world can understand the truth about the Nord Stream Sabotage, thereby moving forward without lies or inaccuracies.
As many of you may know, a series of clandestine bombings and subsequent underwater gas leaks occurred on the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipelines on September 26, 2022.
While there has been much speculation about the nature of this sabotage, I aim to provide additional details and facts that will give a clearer picture.
Before the attacks on September 11, 2001, I started working with contractors at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab in Maryland. We were working on the Advanced Seal Delivery System (ASDS), a covert mini-submarine designed for the Navy Seals to carry out stealthy clandestine missions. This submarine is transported on the back of nuclear submarines and detaches to execute its missions.
I was chosen to work on this project, and my role was to assist in the programming of the full-sized, temperature-controlled simulator for the submarine on which the Navy Seals would train. The simulator featured screens that displayed a 3D simulation of the ASDS undocking from a nuclear submarine, executing its mission, and then returning to dock.
I spent countless hours in the simulator, ensuring everything functioned as specified. I piloted the simulator on simulated missions, just like the Navy Seal pilots would before their actual missions. Even in 2001, we had the ability to program a variety of scenarios, including the sabotaging of pipelines. Although I did not pilot a simulated mission specifically for the Nord Stream pipelines, I did simulate scenarios of covertly sabotaging pipelines. I can confirm that the United States has had this capability for decades, and the ASDS is in the US inventory, fully capable of executing the Nord Stream Sabotage.
Publicly available radar evidence from http://flightradar24.com helps shine light on how the Nordstream sabotage was conducted. As exposed by Seymour Hersh, the explosives were planted during the Baltops 22 maritime exercises. Although speculation remains as to the exact method of explosives placement, I believe that the modern Advanced Seal Delivery System (ASDS) was utilized with Navy divers. This mirrors the way I would have conducted the mission in the simulator.
Once the explosives were planted, they would be triggered by sonobuoy. On September 25, at roughly 10:52 pm UTC, a US Navy Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk appeared on radar in the Baltic Sea, east of Bornholm Island. Radar data indicates that this state-of-the-art helicopter, equipped with sonobuoy, had been hovering for an indeterminate length of time. Within clear range of the explosion, the US Navy Sikorsky is seen on radar loitering before, during, and after the explosion, until approximately 1:43 am UTC when it goes off radar in the Baltic, having hovered for over three hours in darkness. This helicopter was present at the scene of the explosion before, during, and after the event, equipped with sonobuoy capable of triggering the explosion.
Meanwhile, on September 25, at roughly 11:28 pm UTC, a US Navy Boeing P-8A Poseidon equipped with sonobuoy and with NO CALLSIGN appeared on radar east of the Faroe Islands. This Boeing P-8A Poseidon headed directly to the site of the first Nord Stream explosion near Bornholm Island, reaching an observational point at 1:08 am UTC on September 26, just over one hour after the first explosion at 12:03 am UTC. Important: The P-8A Poseidon took off >BEFORE< the first explosion and was heading to the coordinates were the explosion would occur.
At this juncture, the Poseidon had completed the first part of its mission, confirming the detonation of the explosives. It then flew over land near Miastko and rendezvoused with a US Air Force Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker for in-air refueling at 1:20 am UTC on September 26. The Poseidon circled with the Stratotanker until 2:28 am UTC, after which it was ready to complete the second part of its mission.
It returned to the first explosion site for observation at 2:42 am UTC. It then made a tight loop at a low altitude, around 24,000 ft, directly above the explosion site for optimal observation. Afterward, it descended to a very low altitude of 7,275 ft in tight loops until it disappeared from radar at roughly 3:05 am UTC. At this point, the Poseidon likely dropped a sonobuoy to initiate the countdown for the second wave of explosions, which would occur approximately 14 hours later.
The same US Navy Boeing P-8A Poseidon with no callsign reappeared on radar at 6:22 am UTC on September 26, east of Bornholm Island. It flew to the site of the first explosion for a second look at 7:00 am UTC, then flew back and disappeared from radar at roughly 9:04 am UTC east of the Faroe Islands.
After the second wave of explosions at 5:03 pm UTC on September 26, the original US Navy Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk reappeared on radar in the Baltic at roughly 6:42 pm UTC. It then hovered for over two hours until approximately 8:50 pm UTC, at which point it went off radar. During this time, it had an observational view of the aftermath of the second wave of explosions.
