Joe Biden and his administration have come under fire for their suspected involvement in the Nord Stream attack on September 26th, 2022.
The plan to blow up the pipelines first surfaced when the CIA informed President Biden of its ability to carry out such an endeavor. In response, he downgraded it from a covert operation that would require informing Congress to a highly classified intelligence operation with U.S. military support. As part of this effort, American Navy and Air Force facilities in Norway were utilized to identify the best place to target the pipelines, which ended up being in shallow waters off Denmark’s Bornholm Island.
To make matters worse, the plan was initially set for 48 hours after a NATO exercise known as BALTOPS but then was changed at the last minute by the White House so that it could be detonated remotely three months later instead. Following this change, a Norwegian Navy P8 surveillance plane dropped sonar buoys into the sea which triggered high-powered C4 explosives planted on four pipelines with concrete protective covers by divers resulting in three of them being put out of commission and pools of methane gas spreading across the water’s surface.
2) BIDEN: “If Russia invades...then there will no longer be a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it."
REPORTER: "But how will you do that, exactly, since...the project is in Germany's control?"
BIDEN: "I promise you, we will be able to do that."

Russia has been very vocal about their suspicions that Biden ordered this terrorist act, with Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova even pointing out that countries like Denmark, Germany and Sweden have objected to Russia’s participation in investigating this incident despite them sustaining massive losses due to it.
The Gateway Pundit reported,
The Speaker of the Russian parliament Vyacheslav Volodin branded US President Joe Biden a “terrorist” after a report by veteran US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh blamed Washington for sabotaging the Nord Stream pipelines last year. Russia is calling for a special session of the UN security council, while the German AfD party wants a parliamentary investigation.
Volodin called the purported US Nord Stream sabotage “an act of intimidation of its vassals, who decided to develop their economy in the interests of their own citizens.” He demanded an international investigation to “bring Biden and his accomplices to justice,” and to make sure that the nations affected by this “terrorist attack” are paid compensation.
The AfD (Alternative for Germany) party has called a special session of the German Bundestag (parliament) on the charges for Friday, and is demanding a parliamentary inquiry.
At the end of it all, there seems to be quite a bit of evidence to suggest that Joe Biden was behind this attack on Nord Stream, from downgrading it from a covert operation to ordering its remote detonation three months later and more importantly refusing to address any speculation about his involvement or provide answers as to why he issued such orders in the first place. It's time for him and his administration to take accountability for their actions and reveal more information about why this attack took place if they wish to restore confidence in America's commitment towards peacekeeping missions around the world.
