Just after writing a massive expose about Bowe Bergdahl and how he deserted his unit to seek out the Taliban, an investigative journalist for Rolling Stone named Michael Hastings was killed under very suspicious circumstances. Along with revealing why Bergdahl left, the report also detailed his anti-American beliefs by publishing emails that the captured soldier had sent to his father that read “I am ashamed to be an American…The horror that is America is disgusting.”
An article on Western Journalism outlined the many connections between Bergdahl’s capture and the untimely death of Hastings.
Apparently the soldiers within Bergdahl’s unit had violated their gag-orders in order to talk to Hastings about their comrade who left, and their revelations were published in July of 2012. Along with the soldiers in Afghanistan, Hastings had went to the home of Bergdahl’s parents and spoke to them about their missing son.
“When we saw Obama pawing Bowe Bergdahl’s mother and hugging his father last week in the White House Rose Garden, this wasn’t how he was treating them in 2012. The Obama administration in 2012 had “encouraged” his parents to keep their mouths shut. The father, Robert Bergdahl, had gone on a very public crusade, criticizing the Obama administration for killing Afghanistan civilians, and had even said that one of the Taliban captors of his son had had his child murdered by a CIA drone—mirroring events in the popular Showtime series “Homeland”. This was stated at a very public GOP fundraising event in 2010 hosted by former RNC head Michael Steele. Robert Bergdahl had also just posted a video on YouTube, where he appealed directly to this son’s captors, stating: “…We must also thank those who have cared for our son for almost two years…We have wept that God may show his beneficence, his mercy and that his peace may come upon the people of Pakistan. As-salamu alaykum [peace be upon you].”
After this, the author wrote, the Obama administration was actively trying to keep a lid on both Robert Bergdahl as well as Hastings himself, which was detailed in secret FBI documents that were released to an investigative reporter named Jason Leopold.
According to the 22-page report that the journalist obtained, both Hastings and his co-writer, Afghanistan war vet Matt Farwell, were under investigation by the FBI in the beginning of 2012. The heavily redacted document revealed that Hastings and Farwell were under direct, and constant, FBI surveillance throughout 2012, including when they met with the Bergdahls in Idaho.
“Keep in mind, at the time of Hastings’ death, the FBI had denied they had ever investigated Hastings, despite Hastings sending out a frantic email hours before his death with the subject line: “FBI Investigation,” stating that he was being investigated. Also included in the body of the email was a reference to a “big story” he was working on. This “big story” turned out not to be about Bergdahl, but an investigation of then-terrorism czar—now CIA head—John Brennan, per Hastings’ widow. After Hastings’ death, all of his notes and documents on Brennan were suppressed—and this “big story” never appeared in Rolling Stone.”
While the Obama administration was successful at suppressing the Bergdahl’s anti-American beliefs back then, once social media users caught on to the thousands of traitorous tweets by Robert Berghdahl there was nothing that could be done to cover it up any longer.
According to the author, the same may happen with John Brennan.
“According to the book Benghazi: The Definitive Report, John Brennan runs the secret black ops army JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command)—that operates with zero oversight—outside the purview of Congress, the Courts and even the Pentagon—essentially giving Brennan more power than the President of the United States! One of JSOC’s major functions is to make sure weapons are flowing unhindered to rebel groups worldwide that are on the side of the United States—including the al-Qaeda-linked rebels in Syria. At the time of the attack on the Benghazi consulate on September 11, 2012, JSOC and the CIA were housing a huge cache of weapons at the secret CIA base near the consulate, which also later came under attack. Per the book Benghazi: The Definitive Report, this is the reason why Barack Obama could not send help to Americans under attack in Benghazi and later blamed a “protest turned violent” over an obscure internet video. JSOC’s transfer of weapons to the rebels in Syria at the time was illegal, and sending in the cavalry to save Americans would have exposed Brennan’s illegal operation.”
They speculate that the “big story” that was due to be released by Hastings was either to do with Bergdahl or with Brennan’s illegal activities. If that’s the case, then the reason that Hastings died an untimely death under suspicious circumstances has just been blown wide open.
This will definitely be interesting to watch, especially considering that the Obama administration doesn’t believe it needs to follow the law. So the intentional targeting of an American that could sink Obama and his cohorts for assassination is not out of the realm of possibilities.
