Hastings investigated the US MICC.

The Runaway General

Hastings’s 2010 article for Rolling Stone showed Stanley McChrystal's dislike of the Obama administration. But in addition it drew on McChrystal’s former role as the commander of Joint Special Operations Command, a covert unit whose operations were routinely resulting in scores of civilian deaths.[3]


Hastings was driving his Mercedes when he was killed in a one vehicle car crash.[4] He had already expressed concern that his car was being tampered with.[5] 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."[6] Mercedes showed no interest in recalling the car, and the us commercially-controlled media has showed little interest in investigating the matter.[6]

The remains of his body were cremated without prior consent of the family.[7][8]

While some focus was given to american intelligence as the likely culprit,[9][10][11][12][13] especially over his recent investigation of John Brennan,[14][15] an article at occupy.com speculates that his accident could have been set up by private contractors.[16]

WikiLeaks/Vault 7

Tweet from Wikileaks on 19 June 2013

Michael Hastings contacted Wikileaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson just a few hours before he died, saying that the FBI was investigating him.[17]

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."[18]


A Quote by Michael Hastings

David PetraeusDavid 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
