A leaked video featuring retired four star General Stanley McChrystal has surfaced, prompting debates about the Nord Stream pipeline bombing. General McChrystal, once in charge of all U.S. forces in Afghanistan and the head of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) during the Iraq War, was captured in an off record conversation discussing his views on Russia and the alleged involvement of the United States in the pipeline bombing.
The leaked video, obtained and released by Valuetainment Media, captured a candid moment where McChrystal expressed his opinions on the Nord Stream situation. He began by acknowledging that there appeared to be no easy solution when it came to dealing with Russia, stating that there were no apparent suitable alternatives to President Putin. However, McChrystal believed that Putin should step down from power.

When questioned about his thoughts on the possible perpetrators behind the Nord Stream pipeline bombing, General McChrystal made a surprising revelation. Both he and his son, who leads the energy team at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), were skeptical about Russia or Ukraine being responsible for the attack.
Going even further, the retired General claimed that the only nation that stood to gain significantly from the Nord Stream bombing was the United States, particularly those involved in global natural gas production. According to McChrystal, the U.S. had significantly benefited from the situation as it led to a shift in policy, resulting in the country exporting liquid natural gas overseas.
This statement by McChrystal appears to corroborate a controversial report released by journalist Seymour Hersh in February, which alleged that U.S. forces, under the direction of the Biden administration, were responsible for sabotaging the Nord Stream pipeline. The motive behind this alleged act was purportedly to enhance President Biden's chances of re-election in 2024.
Following the release of Hersh's report, social media platforms faced accusations of censorship as the report was swiftly taken down, with platforms citing violations of community guidelines. In response to the allegations, President Biden categorically dismissed the report, labeling it as "false and complete fiction." The White House reiterated its stance, claiming that the U.S. had no involvement in the Nord Stream pipeline bombing.
Despite the White House's denial, the emergence of the leaked video featuring General Stanley McChrystal has reignited the debate and added fuel to the fire of questions surrounding the Nord Stream incident. Calls for a thorough investigation into the matter have grown louder, with demands for transparency and accountability.
As the controversy unfolds, it remains to be seen how authorities will respond to the leaked video and the claims made by General McChrystal. The implications of such an investigation could have far reaching consequences, not just for U.S.-Russia relations but also for the Biden administration's credibility on the international stage.
