Why Democrats Love To Spy On Americans (Michael Hastings Last Article)
buzzfeed ^ | 06/07/3013 | Michael Hastings

Posted on 06/20/2013 9:37:40 AM PDT by Rusty0604

Besides Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall, most Democrats abandoned their civil liberty positions during the age of Obama. With a new leak investigation looming, the Democrat leadership are now being forced to confront all the secrets they’ve tried to hide.

I saw this: "WikiLeaks says Michael Hastings contacted it just before his death. Are they implying he was murdered?" http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/timstanley/100222652/wikileaks-says-michael-hastings-contacted-it-just-before-his-death-are-they-implying-he-was-murdered/

And then I saw the article I posted was his last before his bizzare car accident.

Being democrats, they have to look over the shoulders of their superiors to learn how real work is done.

And - given the average IQ of the dim-bulbs, this means they want to look the shoulders of lots of folks.

He told Wikileaks that the FBI was investigating him just before his death.

Yep. I just don’t know what to make of any of it. Quite a mystery. :

From this post:

> Breiubart’s coroner shows up dead from arsenic. — http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2877931/posts
> Now something else: A witness to Breitbart’s death disappears. — http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2881082/posts

...and Breitbart makes three.
So, does three mark enemy action? Or is all of this merely coincidence/“isolated incidents”?

I think it's a fair question to ask: was he assassinated? [Either Breitbart or Hastings.]

I wonder his computer went up in smoke with the car, and if he backed up his hard drive or sent any data to wikileaks.

Maybe his wife has a copy.

You people need chin straps to keep your tin foil hats on.
This crash was witnessed by people who saw the car traveling at a high rate of speed before loosing control and hitting a tree. It doesn’t sound like anything but a drunk or crazy driver. Maybe both.
This guy did an only partially true hatch job on one of the best military guys we had in this fight. I know several people who worked with McXtal and they all had great respect for him..and they are warriors not bureaucrats.

I don’t know if I fall into your category of “you people”. I have no idea what caused his crash, as I am more interested in the recent stories he was working on and what dealings he had with wikileaks.

For a lot of reasons, I don't trust witnesses who are at the scene of any "accident" at 4:30 in the morning. That leads to another question which was drugs or alcohol involved? Even if one could find a honest Medical Examiner in the City of Angels, it sounds as if his body was burned so badly to make such evidence difficult to collect. Maybe someone will do an investigation and find out he had been drinking at some bar all night. Sometimes people have reasons to be going at high rates of speed late at night such as they are in danger.

Your version holds up because it is convenient to have witnesses at 4:30 in the morning and it is convenient that his body was burned so badly that it will probably never be determined what if any levels of drugs or alcohol was in his system.

Pfftt!

Ok so it wasn’t much. She covered his journalism history then what he wasworking on now like NSA etc and showed the car fire and said some are questioning if this was really an accident. .

Not much but I’m amazed it was brought up at all.

Thanks. At least she brought it up, and if there are any reporters left that aren’t too scared to investigate this maybe we’ll find out how this “accident” happened. After reading his entire last article and then learning he told wikileaks that the FBI was investigating him sounds fishy, but who knows?
