Posted on 07/09/2013 8:32:47 AM PDT by george76
Weeks after the fiery death of investigative journalist Michael Hastings , who was probing abuses by the CIA and NSA and had recently informed others that he was being investigated by federal authorities, suspicions about his mysterious car crash are still swirling around the Internet. While police officially ruled the death an accident, serious questions are still surfacing even in the establishment media and among prominent officials. Based on e-mails Hastings sent out shortly before he died about working on a big story and needing to go off the radar, it has become clear that he was worried, too.
Hastings, who wrote for Rolling Stone, BuzzFeed, Gawker, and other publications, was probably best known for his award-winning 2010 article The Runaway General. The piece helped bring down U.S. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, commander of American and NATO forces in Afghanistan. Despite his establishment credentials and what analysts called his Democrat-friendly reporting, Hastings had become extremely alarmed about the surveillance state and other troubling developments in recent months. His last published story: "Why Democrats Love To Spy On Americans."
Less than 24 hours before his death, Hastings made it crystal clear that he was concerned about his own well-being
Heavy-hitters from the government sector have expressed concerns, too. Former U.S. National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counter-terrorism Richard Clarke, for example ... that the deadly car crash was consistent with a car cyber-attack. Intelligence agencies for major powers including the U.S. government almost certainly know how to remotely seize control of a car

Sort of like the ‘Arkacides’ during the Clinton Administration.
Have never believed that Breitbart died of natural causes. Much too convenient and coincidental the way it happened. Have never been a proponent of coincidences.
Impossible. He and his sons (W and Bubba) are kind, good people who bulid Foundations, are Ambassadors for natural disasters, and care deeply about the serfs. And anyway, who needs Saudi money and illegal drug money from an airport built in the middle of Nowhere, AR when you're rich?
Err...uhh...Maybe his car was fueled by Napalm.
Can you source the Diesel engine issue. I thought he had a gas C-350.
1. Keep a full diary of activities that multiple co-workers have easy access to.
2. Never say "I'm going to reveal something soon" - just do it already.
3. Always assume that the people you're chasing have read the list of rules, and that you're gonna be toast when they catch you.
“I remember a LOT of freepers here angrily declaring Breitbart was a heart attack waiting to happen, didnt take care of himself, and totally rejecting any possibility of a hit.”
I don’t remember it that way. But maybe so. The converse of what you said can be true also. Some people just ‘know’ some conspiracy occurred. Same for this new one. I say both cases look suspicious and should be investigated.
Obama’s ‘Dead Pool’
Just remember, Obama can assassinate American citizens he believes threaten the United States. Since he is POTUS, anything that threatens him is a threat to the US.
(with an undertone of A.Breitbart)
I will NEVER believe that Breitbart died of a natural heart attack.....NEVER!
Was breitbart’s dinner with Bill Ayers WEEKS before he died or was it a matter of one or two DAYS???? I think it was the latter.
Who has his computer and cellphone?
I know what it was, but you folks won’t like it.
There was a spark in the fuel tank, and it spontaneously combusted.
I’m curious to know where you got the impression it was a gasoline powered Mercedes?
It worked for TWA Flight 800.
It’s starting to look like Hillary is on a clean-up campaign.
Let’s not forget Marc Rich also died just recently.
If I’m right there will be more.
David Brock for one.
Glenn Beck was talking on his radio show this morning about the Michael Hastings death.
No skid marks on the roadway, and Glenn Beck mentioned that witnesses saw one or two explosions BEFORE the Mercedes hit the palm tree.
Glenn also mentioned that someone videotaped the whole incident. Glenn asked, “Who’s out in the street at 4:20 AM taking videos?” Bizarre.
A guy I know who plays in a rock band says you can always tell where the CIA is most active on the globe currently by what drugs are most available in US cities (with the implication being that the drugs’ availability indicates the CIA’s presence, not vice versa).
[For the record, I am in good health, and not feeling suicidal.]
Just watch footage of the takedown of Building 7, then get back to me.
Anybody who has information that volatile and has not made provisions for its automatic release upon death is a total fool.
