Report: Michael Hastings Was Investigating CIA Director John Brennan When Killed by Car Explosions (August 13, 2013)

Brennan named as being “behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists”

Journalist Michael Hastings was investigating CIA director John Brennan before his untimely death in a suspicious car accident it has been revealed, with the report set to be published posthumously by Rolling Stone Magazine within the next two weeks.

Video shows first explosion occurs within Hastings car while driving down street, followed by two more explosions that are not characteristic of auto accidents investigators report.

The reports are consistent with recently uncovered surveillance footage that appears to show the journalist’s Mercedes suffering several explosions before crashing into a tree.

After initially refusing to divulge the tapes, the Los Angeles Police Department was forced to release the 911 calls to San Diego 6 news channel yesterday after an FOIA request. Out of the seven calls released, three eyewitnesses described the car exploding.

Call one; “Caller reported an accident, the car exploded. Caller was transferred to the Los Angeles City Fire Department.”

Call two; “Caller reported a huge accident, and the car had blown up. Caller was transferred to the Los Angeles City Fire Department.”

Call three; “Caller reported a car accident occurred in front of his house, and the car is burning.”

Call four; “Caller reported a traffic collision, he is not involved, there is a possible fatality because there was a giant explosion that occurred in the median, unknown if anyone got out of the vehicle.”

Call five; “Caller reported a car is totally engulfed in flames.”

Call six; “Caller reported a large fire on the divider of the road, he is not sure if there is a car involved.”

And call seven; “Caller reported huge auto accident.”

Analysis of the surveillance footage of the crash shows three large explosions before the vehicle comes to rest and begins to burn, fueling speculation that Hastings’ car was booby trapped with some kind of incendiary device.

The LAPD’s response to San Diego 6 also indicates that a federal agency is now investigating the death of Hastings.

“To find-out who is investigating and why, this week Judicial Watch will serve additional FOIAs against the DOJ (AKA Eric Holders’ war on journalists), Department of Homeland Security’s HSI, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA), the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Secretary of the Department of Defense (DoD), and the Secretary of the Department of the Army (due to unchallenged threats made directly to Mr. Hastings),” writes Kimberly Dvorak.

As we reported last month, police and firefighters in the area have been given a gag order and told not to talk to the media about Hastings’ death.

Although the LAPD ruled out foul play days after the incident, automotive experts questioned why Hastings’ brand new Mercedes exploded into flames with such ferocity and why the engine was found 150 feet behind the vehicle.

Former counter-terror czar Richard Clarke reacted to the news by telling the Huffington Post that the fatal crash was “consistent with a car cyber attack.” Academic studies show that it is relatively easy to hack and remote control a modern day vehicle.

Hastings sent out an email to friends and colleagues 15 hours before his car crash stating he was “onto a big story” and needed “to go off the rada[r] for a bit.”


"Michael Hastings was definiely killed"

According to San Diego 6 News reporter Kimberly Dvorak, “John Brennan was Hastings next exposé project.” Dvorak says she received an email from the CIA, “acknowledging Hastings was working on a CIA story,” although the text of that email was not displayed.

Dvorak also cites a Stratfor email hacked by Wikileaks and first published last year which names Brennan as being, “behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists learning information from inside the beltway sources.”

“There is specific tasker from the WH to go after anyone printing materials negative to the Obama agenda (oh my.) Even the FBI is shocked,” states the email.

Before being sworn in as CIA director in March this year, Brennan was a counterterrorism advisor for the Obama administration and helped compile the “kill lists” for the White House’s drone assassination program.

A separate email Dvorak received from CIA media spokesman Todd Ebitz states, “Any suggestion that Director Brennan has ever attempted to infringe on constitutionally-protected press freedoms is offensive and baseless.”

Was Hastings about to reveal that Brennan had been tasked with targeting independent reporters who were in the business of releasing sensitive information?

Dvorak claims that Hastings’ posthumous exposé of Brennan will be published by Rolling Stone Magazine within the next two weeks, although this has yet to be confirmed by the publication itself.

Infowars first reported that Hastings was likely investigating the CIA prior to his death following the comments of Hastings’ close friend Sgt. Joe Biggs, who revealed that the journalist was working on “the biggest story yet” about the CIA.

Hastings sent an email hours before his death stating he was “onto a big story” and needed “to go off the rada[r] for a bit.” A separate close friend of Hastings also told Infowars that the journalist’s home was visited by agents from an unnamed federal agency the day before his death.

Analysis of the recently released surveillance footage of Hastings’ vehicle in the moments before the crash, which was carried out by SDSU professor Morteza M. Mehrabadi, Professor and Interim Chair Areas of Specialization: Mechanics of Materials, also suggests that Hastings was not speeding before his Mercedes hit a tree.

The footage appears to confirm eyewitness reports that the car suffered an “explosion” before it hit the tree, suggesting some kind of incendiary device was planted on the vehicle.

By measuring the distance traveled by the car on the surveillance clip and the time that elapsed before the explosion, Professor Mehrabadi was able to calculate that the car was only traveling at a speed of 35 MPH, and not speeding as some reports claimed.

“The pre-explosion and slower speed could also explain the minimal damage to the palm tree and the facts the rear tires rested against the curb. It also provides an explanation for the location of the engine and drive train at more than 100 feet from the tree impact area,” writes Dvorak.

"Chilling Effect"

LA Police say there is no suspicion of foul play, but wil not release any police reports, or discuss the case, or explain why body was cremated without family's permissionn.

Did CIA Head John Brennan Kill Michael Hastings?

OMG, Ken,

How could any rational human being ever suspect that the CIA would ever cross the legal line and commit a crime of any sort??? The thought is absolutely preposterous. And how could anyone possibly imagine that the CIA would actually assassinate someone to cover-up those impossible crimes??? Everyone knows that the CIA is a righteous and patriotic organization that works to bring humanity together in a drug-free and war free world where peace and love reign for all!

The CIA is the bane of Hell, and all members should be immediately rounded up and tried at the Hague International Court, then hanged, to purge the earth of their satanic wickedness just as the Knights Templar were rounded up and executed in 1313! (on Friday, October 13, 1307, King Philip IV of France ordered the simultaneous arrest and imprisonment of all the available Knights Templar, and the confiscation of all their worldly goods.

The FBI (Homeland Terrorist Orchestrators) and DHS (Department of Homeland Tyranny) should be disbanded immediately as well. These nazi infiltrated, fascist, globalist organizations are a threat to national security, and mankind, and should not be tolerated for one more instant.

Well I would not feel so all alone, everybody must get droned!
