A wise person once said – three things cannot remain hidden for long: the sun, the moon and the truth. We live in a world of misinformation, that which is misleading, and disinformation, that which is deliberately deceptive. Ironically it would seem that the very same authorities and leaders who popularised these terms are in fact those most guilty of their practice.
A couple of months back I spoke with legendary reporter Seymour Hersh about a bombshell story he broke regarding the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines.
On 26 September 2022, a series of clandestine bombings and subsequent underwater gas leaks occurred on the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipelines. The pipelines were built to transport natural gas from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea, and are majority owned by Gazprom.
The mainstream narrative claimed the perpetrators and the motives were at best unknown and open to debate. But, for Seymour Hersh, the sabotage was carried out by the CIA, US Navy and the Norwegian Navy, under the direct order of President Biden. To say this caused a stir in the corridors of power would be something of an understatement.
Since that explosive – pardon the pun – report came out, Seymour has doubled down on his assertion and moreover, since claimed that military intelligence alongside the US government has concocted a cover story to explain away the event. Something that has in many ways added weight to Seymour’s version of events and served as a red rag to a bull, at least where Seymour’s journalistic endeavours are concerned.
More recently, Seymour has penned more incredible revelations, regarding President Zelensky, his government and the corruption that is taking place in Ukraine. Seymour claims that the Ukrainian government has been using American taxpayers’ funds to pay “dearly for the vitally needed diesel fuel that is keeping the Ukrainian army on the move in its war with Russia.”
It is another incredible story that Seymour has shared with the world via his Substack platform, where he is part of an ever-growing community of voices and readers searching for answers and more importantly the truth.
Seymour has spent much of the last 50 years elbow-deep in some of the biggest and oftentimes most controversial stories of the day. He’s an investigative journalist, political writer and author, who among his many accolades was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting.
Seymour has had a long and storied career having first written for The New Yorker back in 1971. He spent time on the Presidential campaign of Eugene J. McCarthy as a speech writer and press secretary, before joining the New York Times in 1972.
Seymour gained widespread recognition for exposing the My Lai Massacre and its cover-up during the Vietnam War. In the 1970s, he covered the Watergate scandal for The New York Times and revealed the clandestine bombing of Cambodia.
In 2004, he reported on the US military’s mistreatment of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison, while his endeavours to uncover the circumstances of Osama Bin Laden’s death saw him caught in the crosshairs as he accused the Obama administration of lying systematically about the killing, something he suggested American media outlets were reluctant to challenge.
“I’m not convinced that every secret has to be published. I think there are secrets worth keeping, and I think there are secrets not worth keeping.”
In a 2013 article, Seymour argued that the Obama administration had used “cherry-picked intelligence” to try to justify a military strike against Syria and disputed the claim that the Assad regime used chemical weapons on civilians in the Syrian Civil War.
All of this has seen Seymour Hersh forge a reputation as one of the world’s most acclaimed investigative journalists. He has won two National Magazine Awards and a record five George Polk Awards and in 2004, he was the recipient of the George Orwell Award.
He has written a number of books, including The Price of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House, Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib, The Killing of Osama Bin Laden and his acclaimed autobiography Reporter: A Memoir.
His book prizes include the 1983 National Book Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Times Award for his biography, and a Sidney Hillman Award, for “The Price of Power”.
His reputation has been forged by sheer determination to get to the beating heart of the story. Alongside this, a little black book of contacts that is the envy of any investigator on the planet. It is Seymour Hersh’s sources that have allowed him to break some of the biggest stories of our times and of course, created much controversy in the process.
Seymour is still going strong even in his later years and has once again shown his willingness to place himself in the firing line, in search of answers. His unwavering commitment to the truth should be heralded and I can’t wait to take another deep dive into how this huge story is evolving and much more about the war in Ukraine and what might be next for the Biden Administration.
