Hastings investigated the US MICC.
Hastings was driving his Mercedes when he was killed in a one vehicle car crash. He had already expressed concern that his car was being tampered with. Russ Baker put it, the car "suddenly sped up, veered off the road, jumped the median, and crashed into a tree, exploding into flames with such violence that the engine was sent flying more than a hundred feet from the chassis."
Global Research wrote in 2017 that "The WikiLeaks/Vault 7 dump strengthens the case against John Brennan, the CIA director that Stratfor stated was on a witch hunt against journalists when Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings was suspiciously killed after his late model car was almost certainly remote controlled to speed up to near 100 MPH prior to it exploding in June 2013."
A Quote by Michael Hastings
|David Petraeus||“David Petraeus is... a world-class bullshit artist... He essentially armed and trained what later became known as ‘Iraqi death squads.’ He... took the Shiites’ side in a civil war, armed them to the teeth, and suckered the Sunnis into thinking we’d help them out too... Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis lost their lives during a sectarian conflict that Petraeus’ policies fueled... The reputations of the men who were intimately involved in these years of foreign misadventure, where we tortured and supported torture, armed death squads, conducted nightly assassinations, killed innocents, and enabled corruption on an unbelievable scale, lie in tatters.”||Aangirfan|
