This is very big fucking news.  I suppose the fake “alternative” media, such as Mother Jones, will smear Hastings himself as a “conspiracy theorist.”  His death by car crash remains the most suspicious such case since Princess Diana.  The engine from his Mercedes Benz somehow flew 100 ft. from the wreck, an indisputable fact that defies explanation.  Mercedes aren’t known for flying apart in such a way, now are they?  Ask yourself.

“Michael Hastings, who died in a car crash in April, had reportedly become concerned that his car had been tampered with in the days leading up to his death, and asked friend Jordanna Thigpen to borrow hers, according to new profile in the LA Weekly.”

“[HASTINGS] came to Thigpen’s apartment after midnight and urgently asked to borrow her Volvo. He said he was afraid to drive his own car.She declined, telling him her car was having mechanical problems.

“He was scared, and he wanted to leave town,” she says.

The next day, around 11:15 a.m., she got a call from her landlord, who told her Hastings had died early that morning. His car had crashed into a palm tree at 75 mph and exploded in a ball of fire.” (LA Weekly)

“It sounded like a bomb went off in the middle of the night. My house shook. The windows were rattling.”

In Hastings’ 2012 book, The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, Hastings says a McChrystal staffer said to him, “We’ll hunt you down and kill you if we don’t like what you write.”

Make of that what you will.
