WikiLeaks says Michael Hastings contacted it just before his death. Are they implying he was murdered?

WikiLeaks just threw some gasoline onto the conspiracy fire. On Wednesday night, they Tweeted: “Michael Hastings contacted WikiLeaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson just a few hours before he died, saying that the FBI was investigating him.”

What exactly are they trying to say?

This all reads like a Vince Flynn novel (may he too rest in peace).

How long til pressers, by journolists, start with the disclaimers “I’m not depressed, I keep my car in sound mechanical order, I have no history of heart disease...”

Wiki’s next move, tweet, blog should be fascinating...

(And I do long for the days when our old pal LiLo is the “big” news:)

Why is it that all these investigative reporters of late die at such a young age while people like Nancy Pelosi live to be 150 (and counting...)?

Arkancide was simply to personally protect the Clintons.

This is something far worse.

Odinga has the resources of a nation-state behind him. The recent murders (yes, I say murders) of SEAL Team Six, Chris Pyle, the two gun experts, Breitbart, and others all protect not only Odinga, but the Agenda as well.

All critics of The Agenda must die. Recall the quote attributed to Valerie Jarrett...

I’ve said for the last decade that I feel like I’m living in a movie. Now I feel like I’m living in a spy movie.

When I became a Christian I stopped believing in coincidence. Breitbart and now this. And look at the details. We are living in very dangerous times. Yes, it has reached that level.

Sure, they are not as overt as Hitler’s storm troopers. They can’t be. History has made us too savvy as a society to fall for that again. But it is happening again, just in a more sophisticated way. Just as commercials today are better than the ones in the 1040’s.

This one pushed me over the edge. At this point my eyes are wide open regarding who we are dealing with - and it is pure evil. It is the stuff of Jason Borne and James Bond movies - without the lead character.

To quote a famous movie character - “you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautions.”

I know the movie references don’t help my credibility, So let me try Tom Clancy books, but ALL the governments are bad guys and there is no Jack Ryan.

Just to be completely honest, wasn’t Breitbart diagnosed with heart disease sometime before he collapsed?

It couldn't possibly have happened in only five years - the difference is the current President lacks the sophistication of his predecessors.

I don’t think this is slam dunk evidence by any means.

I asked a guy who is a paramedic and he says he’s seen that kind of carnage several times from very high speed impacts.

What are the odds that they could impact the car into this big tree via the bomb?

Kill the Messenger: How the CIA's Crack-Cocaine Controversy Destroyed Journalist Gary Webb

Kill the Messenger tells the story of the tragic death of Gary Webb, the controversial newspaper reporter who committed suicide in December 2004. Webb is the former San Jose Mercury News reporter whose 1996 "Dark Alliance" series on the so-called CIA-crack cocaine connection created a firestorm of controversy and led to his resignation from the paper amid escalating attacks on his work by the mainstream media. Author and investigative journalist Nick Schou published numerous articles on the controversy and was the only reporter to significantly advance Webb's stories. Drawing on exhaustive research and highly personal interviews with Webb's family, colleagues, supporters and critics, this book argues convincingly that Webb's editors betrayed him, despite mounting evidence that his stories were correct. Kill the Messenger examines the "Dark Alliance" controversy, what it says about the current state of journalism in America, and how it led Webb to ultimately take his own life. Webb's widow, Susan Bell, remains an ardent defender of her ex-husband. By combining her story with a probing examination of the one of the most important media scandals in recent memory, this book provides a gripping view of one of the greatest tragedies in the annals of investigative journalism.

Algorithm alert: I have spoken (spoken) with several (more than two) people who got close enough to the edge of the volcano to conclude "suicide" is a term of art.
