At the Nord Stream Bomb Site, a Boot Used by US Military Divers Was Discovered. How Did the Official "Investigators" Miss This?

I should point out that this boot is not used exclusively by US Navy divers. It's also used by commercial divers, and by Ukrainian navy divers too, supposedly.

Okay, but: It's suspicious that the "official investigation," being conducted by Sweden, failed to turn this up.

On the evening of May 24, 2023, I stood aboard a small ship called the Baltic Explorer. With sun still high overhead in the Baltic Sea, our boat sat anchored thirty-one nautical miles from the coast of Denmark, and directly above the ruptured Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the exclusive economic zone of Sweden.

For several minutes, I stared at a live video feed from an underwater drone showing never-before-seen footage of the ruptures in the pipeline. Suddenly, a strange object appeared on the screen. It was a black and orange diver's boot.

The Grayzone has identified a model which closely resembles this boot, and is used by both US Navy and commercial divers. Ukrainian Navy divers have also been seen wearing similar boots.

We have also learned that the boot's presence had been previously reported to investigators, yet they have not collected it or divulged its existence.

This article was published a couple of days ago -- and may very well have prompted the CIA to begin leaking that it must have been those Navy Aces of Ukraine that done the deed. It's almost as if when the CIA's first cover story began to unravel, they began pushing their back-up cover story to the compliant state media.

Update, Just in from Jake Tapper: This boot is one of them "conspiracy theories" I keep hearing so much about.

On a more serious note...

I find it odd that something like this would be left behind at the scene of the crime, so to speak. How likely is it that a diver would fail to realize that he'd lost his boot? It seems like something you wouldn't want to leave behind if you were trying to maintain plausible deniability of your involvement.

Very odd, imo.

Too bad there's probably no way to confirm roughly when it ended up there.

NEW: ‘Bob’s Burgers’ and ‘Anchorman’ Actor Arrested on Charges Related to Jan. 6 Capitol Riot

||A well-known actor from Hollywood, who had notable roles in “Mr. Show,” “Arrested Development,” “Bob’s Burgers,” and “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” has been apprehended in California and charged in connection with the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Jay Johnston is facing charges of felony obstruction of officers during civil disorder, along with several misdemeanor offenses, the DOJ announced.

The court documents reveal that Johnston entered the upper west tunnel during the January 6 riot. It is alleged that he “assisted at least three other rioters by pouring water on their faces.” Additionally, the documents state that he wielded a stolen U.S. Capitol Police shield while participating in the clashes between rioters and law enforcement.

The FBI’s National Threat Operations Center received a communication from an attorney representing Johnston on March 8, 2021, according to the bureau.||

Crimea’s water reservoirs have enough water for two years — authorities
In May 2014, Ukraine cut water supplies to Crimea from the Kherson Region via the North Crimean canal

SIMFEROPOL, November 11. /TASS/. Crimea’s water reservoirs have enough water for two years and will be able to meet the peninsula’s entire demand in case the Ukrainian authorities implement their threats and blow up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant’s dam, Crimea’s Prime Minister Vladimir Konstantinov said on Friday.

"From the point of view of the actual situation, Crimea is not dependent on water from the North Crimean canal. We have been living without it for eight years. We have done a lot. We have a program for water supplies until 2024. Water resources in Crimea’s water reservoirs - they are all full - are enough for two year, even if there is no rain. Nevertheless, we count on the North Crimean canal as a source for Crimea’s development," he said.||

I don't think anyone blew it... it was damaged in a HIMAR attack a few weeks ago.... damaged the flood gates. Russians then let water get too high.... there are pictures of damage to the road that crosses it a couple days before it really accelerated its collapse.

Once a dam starts to go, at all... its very hard to save. Add in no real Engineers onsite? Just some military folks? Combination of minor damage, high water, and a lack of Engineers creates a recipe for disaster.

Spring comes late to that part of the world. The dam was damaged in some earlier attacks and now the snow pack melt runoff is causing serious high water issues and destroying the dam. The Ruskies can't let water out fast enough to stop further damage.

Well, they control one side of upstream territory. All they need is a low profile remote operated craft to float down, get close, and sink.

230 So the far left - I mean the far far left - are all abuzz that Trump will be indicted and arrested any second for the Mar-Lago document non-crime thingy - or is it "obstruction?" Why the hold up, you ask? Surely the case has long since been presented to the so-called grand jury at this stage. Is there new evidence? Nope.

The reason is that the Grand Jury judge in this case must instruct the jury as to what is a crime and what is not - you cannot obstruct what is not a crime. So, the grand jury judge in this case can pretend a crime has been committed. But wait! False determinations of crimes - when known to be false by judiciary or LE - are - gulp - a felony under federal statutes. So, hence the 6-month hold up- how does this judge get around that? You can't obstruct what is not a crime and the GJ judge knows it and is required to instruct it and enforce it - knowing it wasn't a crime beforehand and still trying someone may be construed as a crime in of itself. Oops - oopsie! Hence the delay.

245 Its not a boot used by 'Navy Divers'. Its not necessarily even a boot used by divers. It could just as well be some trash tossed off a ship.

And its not exactly hard to miss stuff down there - there's a lot of ocean. No one actually knows where the boot was found in relation to the pipeline either.

Finally, you think the US blew it up when the pipeline sat cold for several months - allowing hydrate buildup - and with Russians *notable* for having horrible engineering practice (especially in the oil field)?

They blew their own pipeline up - accidentally. Its why they haven't been freaking out about it. Its why Europe hasn't been freaking out about it.
