This is absolutely horrible

This is absolutely horrible news. Michael Hastings was one of few journalistic thorns in the US military's side. I'm angry...because I don't know if this was a true accident, or if this was a hit job designed to make his death look like an accident.

People in the media are going to see this news and probably wonder the same damn thing. Was this revenge? Will this create a chilling effect, sealing the lips of those who dare to talk?

May God rest your soul in eternal peace.

Thank you, Michael Hastings.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
