Email Sent by Michael Hastings Hours Before His Death Mentions ‘Big Story’ and a Need to ‘Go Off the Radar’

Staff Sgt. Joseph Biggs told KTLA that he received an email from Hastings on Monday.
Biggs had known Hastings since 2008, when the journalist was embedded in his unit in Afghanistan.
“On Monday morning, I woke up and I got an email, and it’s very panicked,” Biggs said.
He was blind-copied on the email, which was sent to Hastings’ colleagues.
In part, it said that the feds were interviewing his close friends and associates, and that he was onto a big story and needed to get off the radar.
The FBI has denied that Hastings was ever under investigation.
“It alarmed me very much,” Biggs said. “I just said it doesn’t seem like him. I don’t know, I just had this gut feeling and it just really bothered me,” he said.
The email was sent just before 1 p.m. on Monday, 15 hours before the deadly crash.

Seems like a convenient death to me.

Can a car's accelerator pedal be tampered with such that it could timed to speed up bayond a driver's control?

Brakes would not stop a speeding car in this case?

Could you get the vehicle into neutral or turn off ignition in time?

Of course we do have to realize that he went off the deep end and committed suicide by car.

It's all conjecture at this time but questions deserve being asked.

exactly my thoughts

Stuck accelerator (rigged).... fix3d ignition switch, and what else would need to be done to an automatic transmission?

He had some serious and powerful enemies with enough resources to pull that off.

How much time would that take? .... 1 hour in a parking lot ?

Funny way to go off the radar...

by running red lights and speeding down the road at dangerous speeds at four o'clock in the morning.
I believe his car was tampered with. When will reporters like Breibart and Hastings learn you don't tell everyone there's a shell till it's dropped.

He Didn't Announce It Publicly As Breitbart Did

And didn't know the scope of the federal government's surveillance apparatus.

The FBI is lying.

I think we all know this. Why would Michael Hastings lie about that? He wouldn't. There would be no motive.

But, if the FBI had been instrumental in his murder, and they had the motive, let's face it. Well, there SHOULD be an investigation into the FBI and what they did.

But, the LAPD is out to lunch, not available, and don't care.

We're in a real mess in this country, a real mess.

RIP bump in memory of Michael Hastings.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Maybe Hastings...

...got some help faking his own death -- so he could be "off the radar." This is an upside down theory, I know. But hey -- the world gets stranger every day.

Sending a message

Looks like the feds aren't messin' around.

The police ruled

it an accident? Already? Have they even identified the body? Here's another tell tale sign, there hasn't been enough time for a full investigation that rules out homicide, which the police must do first.

I hope people stay on the story...

Don't worry. The government would never kill anybody like that. Has any government ever done so?

What was the HTML tag for sarcasm again?

It's funny how the conspiracy 'script' is being played out...

Do you guys believe all this suspense and melodrama?

Do you know who Michael Hastings is?

Do you know who Elise Jordan is?

Do you know who Ben Rhodes is?

Do you know who Ben Rhodes's brother is?

Propagandists, intelligence agents, screenwriters, speechwriters, aspiring novelists are feeding you a story... and the conspiracy theorists and public are eating up everything that's made for Hollywood.....
