"...the Obama administration actively sought to keep the lid on Robert Bergdahl and Michael Hastings’ reporting of Bowe Bergdahl, as secret FBI documents now reveal.

A 22-page secret FBI report dated June 11, 2012, obtained by investigative reporter Jason Leopold, shows that both Hastings and former Afghanistan war veteran and co-writer Matt Farwell were under an intense FBI investigation in early 2012. The document is highly redacted; but it appears Hastings and Farwell were under direct FBI surveillance, including when they met with Bowe Bergdahl’s parents in 2012."

I recall having read about the death of Michael Hastings in a suspicious, fiery car crash. At the time, I did not realize Hastings had been to Afghanistan, investigating the alleged Bergdahl desertion nor that he had visited with the parents...

This is scary man. What kind of people are liberal democrats anyway that they defend deserters and smear true soldiers. This country is lost and all it took is 6 years of hard core rule by a radical leftist.

I remember that when Hastings dies, it was regarded on FR as suspicious because of other stuff he was investigating. I’ll have to go look.

a suspicious, fiery car crash

Any fiery car crash is suspicious by its very nature. Unless non-automotive components are planted in the car, car crashes are rarely "fiery".

I like Iowahawk’s tweet on this.

A: “Bergdahl was a deserter”

B: “How can you say that? Who would dare to sully the reputation of a brave and gallant American soldier in the field?”

A: “His platoon mates”

B: “You gonna believe those baby-killers?”

“Taliban Mullah in Chief” Hussein Obama has chosen “Secretary of Defending the Taliban” Hagel to continue to make Grand Bargains with Gitmo Prisoners so that Gitmo can be closed on the last day that all US Military Personnel finally abandon Afghanistan to the Taliban.

"This is scary man. What kind of people are liberal democrats anyway that they defend deserters and smear true soldiers."

That's nothing new... During the Vietnam war the liberals cheered as many of their numbers ran off to Canada to avoid the draft.... Many split even AFTER they were in uniform...

To the left, those scum bums were real heroes...!

Thanks for the post!

From the article:

“According to the book Benghazi: The Definitive Report, John Brennan runs the secret black ops army JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command)—that operates with zero oversight—outside the purview of Congress, the Courts and even the Pentagon—essentially giving Brennan more power than the President of the United States!”

‘...at the time of Hastings’ death, the FBI had denied they had ever investigated Hastings, despite Hastings sending out a frantic email hours before his death with the subject line: “FBI Investigation,” stating that he was being investigated. Also included in the body of the email was a reference to a “big story” he was working on. This “big story” turned out not to be about Bergdahl, but an investigation of then-terrorism czar—now CIA head—John Brennan, per Hastings’ widow.’

Big story about CIA head. Car crash. CIA station chief outed in Afghanistan. Terrorists released.

The syndicate is not messing around.

And there is the substantial rumor that Brennan converted to Islam when he was CIA station chief in Riyadh. BTW, Brennan refused to swear his oath in becoming CIA Director on a Bible, choosing instead a copy of the Constitution.

This “big story” turned out not to be about Bergdahl, but an investigation of then-terrorism czar—now CIA head—John Brennan, per Hastings’ widow. After Hastings’ death, all of his notes and documents on Brennan were suppressed—and this “big story” never appeared in Rolling Stone.

In late 2011 and early 2012, administration officials who thought the risk of releasing the Taliban five was manageable included Brennan—then the White House counterterrorism czar—State Department official Marc Grossman, and then-Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough, who led the interagency process that ultimately decided to make an initial prisoner swap offer to the Taliban in the fall of 2011.

Keep in mind the following:

* Soetoro’s first homo “wife” at Haaaavud was from Pakistan.

* Soetoro and wifey disappeared in Pakistan for many months.

* Pakistan already has the A-Bomb.

* The territorial joining of the “Poppies of Afghanistan” and the Plutonium of Pakistan” will pose an interesting challenge to “The Plan of Iran.”

There’s more than meets the eye.

There’s the Benghazi gun running operation supplying AlQaeda in Syria - the “moderate” AlQaeda I think is what McCain calls them. Nothing of consequence has been done about this. Then there’s Obama himself, he worked for BIC (Business International Corporation, a CIA front), his background is murky (dodgy life story, questionable documents, etc - seems like a “legend”), he traveled to Pakistan, Stanley Ann Dunham had CIA connections.

Yes, there’s much more than meets the eye.

At the time he allegedly claimed he was followed by FBI and scared for his life. I once saw computer geeks in the back seat of a car overriding the driver controlling!!!

Probably the weird looking Bergdahl parent told Barry about Hastings and rigged Michael’s car???
