VIDEO: Was Journalist Michael Hastings Murdered? Police and Firefighters on the Scene Told not to Comment


The Political Blind Spot reports:

Mercedes Benz debunks the theory that the car of Wikileaking journalist Michael Hastings “just blew up” upon impact. Journalists have consulted leading University Physics professors in the Los Angeles area, who all agreed that the placement of the engine defied expectations of a normal crash scenario.

Police and reporters on the scene confirm there were NO skid marks, both explaining the videos of the speeding car. (Gag order issued for Police and Firefighters responders to scene of Wikileaking Journalist assassination,  The Political Blind Spot July 11, 2013)

The crime scene has made investigative journalists as well as former military doubt Hastings’ car crash was an accident and claim that Michael Hasting’s car could have been manipulated through remote control. Adding to the murder suspicions is an email Hastings wrote to his coworkers only a few hours before he died:

Subject: FBI Investigation, re: NSA Hey (redacted names) – the Feds are interviewing my “close friends and associates.” Perhaps if the authorities arrive “BuzzFeed GQ,” er HQ, may be wise to immediately request legal counsel before any conversations or interviews about our news-gathering practices or related journalism issues.

Also: I’m onto a big story, and need to go off the rada[r] for a bit.

All the best, and hope to see you all soon. (Melissa Jeltsen,  Michael Hastings Sent Email About FBI Probe Hours Before Death, Huffington Post, June 23, 2013)

WhoWhatWhy published a lengthy article on July 14 in which author Michael Krikorian quotes ”Terry Hopkins, a former U.S. Navy military policeman who served in Afghanistan”:

“I’ve never seen an explosion like that… I’ve seen military vehicles explode, but never quite like that. Look, here’s a reporter who brought down a general. He’s sending out emails saying he’s being watched. It’s four in the morning and his car explodes? Come on, you have to be naïve not to at least consider it wasn’t an accident.” (Michael Krikorian and David J. Krajicek, The Michael Hastings Wreck—Video Evidence Only Deepens the Mystery, WhoWhatWhy, July 14, 2013)

The Political Blind Spot states further:

The most traditional explanation is that the breaks were cut, but the “remote control” hacking of the vehicle has proven exceedingly easy in recent years.

More disturbing still, perhaps is that a gag order has also been placed on cops and firefighters who both responded to and investigated the crash, which occurred in the early hours of June 18 in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

‘Police and firefighters in Los Angeles have been ordered not to speak to the media about the deadly crash involving Rolling Stone journalist Michael Hastings, fueling speculation that some form of cover-up could be underway.’

    According to one of the first online reports I saw on this, the ‘first responders’ were neither cops nor firemen.

    If you just look at this one incident maybe you can conclude that it was an accident..

    given the many many strange accidents of the whiteness and other journalists that got too close to the truth and a pattern emerges,. A CLEAR pattern that smaks of CIA and covert actions..
    like people saying they would never kill themselves hanging themselves.

    Most don’t want to believe they are being ruled over by a ruthless mafia style government ..BUT its true…Its obvious and its been happening for more then a generation…

    As usual in most cases, the “official story” is BS. This one is BS of the highest order. This happened about a mile from where I live. I was down there the day after and took photographs. There were NO skid marks on Highland Ave. which is very straight. And the tree where the car came to rest is charred but barely damaged at the base. Hastings was dead before his car reached the tree. Now the city has planted a new palm tree and the charred one is gone… Read Hastings’ two books… “I Love In Baghdad” and “The Operators”…
