The Nexus Between The CIA’s “Undetectable” Assassinations & The “Mysterious” Death Of Michael Hastings. Why Does It Matter? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

MOST understand that the CIA, the “spook” community, is mandated to operate on behalf of the national interest. By extrapolation, when rogue agents violate their sworn duty they are guilty of criminal conduct and grave breach of trust. Unconscionable. No doubt. But what about their boss(es), the one who leads the agency and gives the order to execute – literally – this one or that one whose only “crime” is exposing the dirty laundry of the highest echelons? You know, the TOP fox(es) in the hen-house.

IN other words, even within security agencies there are lines which cannot be crossed against ones own citizens for the sake of political payback, expediency, and the cover up of governmental crimes. If anything, said actions are akin to criminal hit squads ala the Mafia and the like. Agreed? As to neutralizing enemies of the state via this method or that method, well, that’s not up for navel gazing, at least at this site. Rather, let’s give them (virtual) kudos and high-fives for their protective efforts. That is that.

IN this regard, it was more than obvious that the timing of the highly suspicious death (June 18, 2013) of investigative journalist Michael Hastings (never mind the “convenient” death of Andrew Breitbart on March 1, 2012), as reported by corporate scribblers, wasn’t truthful. Not by a long shot. Therefore, digging and more digging becomes proper due diligence – for those of us who are not part of the captured media! Freelancers. Hooked-in investigative bloggers alike. Beholden to none, threats be damned..

BASICALLY, Hasting’s wikipedia states:

He received the George Polk Award for The Runaway General (2010), a Rolling Stone profile of General Stanley McChrystal, commander of NATO‘s International Security Assistance Force in the Afghanistan war. The article documented the widespread contempt for civilian government officials by the general and his staff and ultimately resulted in McChrystal’s resignation. Hastings followed up with The Operators (2012), a detailed book account of his month-long stay with McChrystal in Europe and Afghanistan.

Hastings became a vocal critic of the Obama administration, Democratic Party and surveillance state during the investigation of reporters by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2013, referring to the restrictions on the freedom of the press by the Obama administration as a “war” on journalism.[4] His last story, “Why Democrats Love to Spy On Americans”, was published by BuzzFeed on June 7.[5][6] Hastings died in a fiery high-speed automobile crash on June 18, 2013, in Los Angeles, California.[7] Blue Rider Press posthumously published his only novel, The Last Magazine (2014), a year after his death.[8]

Alleged foul play controversy[edit]

Soon after his death, some[who?] described the circumstances surrounding the crash as suspicious.[68][disputed ]

Former U.S. National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counter-terrorism Richard A. Clarke said that what is known about the crash is “consistent with a car cyber attack“. He was quoted as saying “There is reason to believe that intelligence agencies for major powers — including the United States — know how to remotely seize control of a car. So if there were a cyber attack on [Hastings’] car — and I’m not saying there was, I think whoever did it would probably get away with it.”[69] Earlier the previous day, Hastings indicated that he believed he was being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In an email to colleagues, which was copied to and released by Hastings’ friend, Army Staff Sergeant Joe Biggs,[70] Hastings said that he was “onto a big story”, that he needed to “go off the radar”, and that the FBI might interview them.[71][72] WikiLeaks announced that Hastings had also contacted Jennifer Robinson, one of its lawyers, a few hours prior to the crash,[73] and the LA Weekly reported that he was preparing new reports on the CIA at the time of his death.[74] His widow Elise Jordan said his final story was a profile of CIA Director John O. Brennan.[75] The FBI released a statement denying that Hastings was being investigated, at least not by the FBI, according to the FBI statement.[62]. This statement was incorrect as FBI had opened a file on Hastings already in 2012 (see FBI files below). Furthermore, on the day of the crash Hastings came to his neighbor Jordanna Thigpen’s apartment after midnight and urgently asked to borrow her Volvo. He said he was afraid to drive his own car. However, Thigpen declined.[14]

Motor Trend technical director Frank Markus said that the ensuing fire was consistent with a high-speed car crash.[76]. On the other hand, it was reported that the fire inside the car was unusually hot and that the “intensity of the fire resembles a “thermite” burn” [77].

There are conflicting opinions as to Hastings’ death. After his death, some media outlets[who?] recalled that Hastings claimed to have received death threats from the military after the McChrystal article.[78][disputed ] Hastings’ widow, Elise Jordan, has said she believes his death to be “just a really tragic accident”.[79][80] His older brother, Jonathan, said he believed Michael was experiencing a “manic episode” shortly before his death, and that he may have had suspicions were it not for this observation.[81]

Cenk Uygur, friend of Hastings’ and host of The Young Turks, told KTLA that many of Michael’s friends were concerned that he was “in a very agitated state”, saying he was “incredibly tense” and worried that his material was being surveilled by the government. Friends believed that Michael’s line of work led to a “paranoid state”.[82] USA Today reported that in the days before his death, Hastings believed his car was being “tampered with” and that he was scared and wanted to leave town.[83]

NOW, while it was widely depicted via leftist media that his premature death was merely an unfortunate “accident”, the implication was that those who questioned said official narrative were (and still are) de facto conspiratorial nut jobs. Okey dokey. Regardless, such mud-slinging is akin to water off a duck’s back. Mind you, even his widow (and some who knew him) went along with the “official” mantra. Alas, to a certain degree, we can understand their “see no evil” blindness, in so far that they too realized what would happen, if they dared to open up a full-blown investigation into the real facts at hand.

THAT being established, those of us who dig for hidden dirt on a professional basis can smell bull-crap from miles away. To wit, the following bullet-points are more than noteworthy; yes, they are bulls-eyes!

  • Back in July 2013, this site reported: “Michael Hastings & His ‘Mysterious’ Fiery Car Crash: Investigative Reporter Came Too Close For Obama Inc.’s Comfort.” Ain’t that the truth.
  • As a follow-up to the above fiery report, “The Targeted Assassination Of Michael Hastings –  The Question Was No Longer Was He Murdered, But Who Ordered The Hit?”, was written in August 2013.
  •  But we are not done yet. Hot on its heels, in Sept. 2013, an update ensued: “The Assassination of Michael Hastings & its Nexus To Obama’s Passport/Bonafides: The Fingerprints of CIA Chief Brennan.” Oh my gosh….
  • Upping the ante, guess what other dirt sealed his fate, and was reported at these pages in Aug. 2014? “Obama’s Assassination Team(s): Taliban Trade, Bowie Bergdahl, ‘Necessitated’ Eliminating Investigative Journalist Michael Hastings.”

READERS, internalize that the ONLY rational explanation for Hasting’s (un)timely demise leads straight back to his “weaponized” investigations, that which implicated the tippy-top of the spear, Obama and Brennan! And what can be more efficient, other than to use the heretofore non-detectable CIA “car cyber attack”, the likes of which can be blamed on an “unfortunate”  vehicular death similar to countless others! Unadulterated evil genius. Indeed.

WHICH brings us smack back to the here and now, almost 4 years after the assassination of Hastings, ala more than enough proof of the same dumped via wikileaks!

Now a Wikileaks release of CIA documents shows the government had been working on plans to infiltrate the vehicle-control systems.

The concept is not fully described in the documents, but WikiLeaks summarized its finding: “As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks. The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.”

It was in an Oct. 23, 2014, CIA “Branch Direction Meeting” of at least 10 people that the issue of “vehicle systems” being a “potential mission area” came up.

Also listed at the time were the “Internet of Things,” “Firmware targets,” “Network devices” and “Software targets.”

The document, as with many leaks by anonymous insiders to shadowy organizations like WikiLeaks, could not be verified immediately.

WikiLeaks said in a statement that the 8,700 documents reveal the “scope and direction” of the CIA’s agenda.

WikiLeaks says its source “details policy questions that they say urgently need to be debated in public, including whether the CIA’s hacking capabilities exceed its mandated powers and the problem of public oversight of the agency.”

“The source wishes to initiate a public debate about the security, creation, use, proliferation and democratic control of cyberweapons.”

The concept of hacking vehicle systems long has raised concerns.

Last year, WND reported the Electronic Privacy Information Center asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to restore a case, Helene Cahen v. Toyota, focused on the electronic monitoring and Internet connectivity built into cars. A trial judge dismissed the case for lack of standing, but the brief contended the ruling should be reversed.

And it’s no longer just about privacy, it’s also about public safety, EPIC argued.

“The internal computer systems for these vehicles are subject to hacking, unbounded data collection, and broad-scale cyber attack,” the brief explained. “Despite this extraordinary risk, car manufacturers are expanding the reach of networked vehicles that enable third-party access to driver data and vehicle operational systems.

“The plaintiffs in this case seek the opportunity to present legal claims stemming from the defendants’ sale of vehicles that place them at risk. That should be allowed to proceed.”

WND reported 2015 two U.S. senators proposed the SPY Car Act of 2015 to create privacy standards for computer systems that control today’s electronics-heavy vehicles.

The proposal came just as a contributor reported hackers who set him up in a new vehicle were able to take over its controls while he was driving at 70 mph…..

It was in 2013 that 33-year-old reporter Michael Hastings died in a fiery car crash “while in the middle of covering several hot-button topics like monitoring by the National Security Agency and the CIA,” the Daily News reported.

“Twitter, Facebook, and sharing site Reddit were abuzz Wednesday, with some users commenting that it was suspicious that Hastings, who famously brought down U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal in a Rolling Stone cover story, died while in the middle of covering several hot-button topics like monitoring by the National Security Agency and the CIA,” the report said.

BuzzFeed’s editor-in-chief, Ben Smith, said: “He knew that there are certain truths that nobody has an interest in speaking, ones that will make you both your subjects and their enemies uncomfortable. They’re stories that don’t get told because nobody in power has much of an interest in telling them.”

The report said, Hastings also had recently written a piece of CIA operative Andrew Warren, who became paranoid that he was being followed, as well as the Rolling Stone piece published in March titled “Killer Drones.”

INEXTRICABLY, America has become the “dark/deep intelligence state.” Incontestably.

SO, at the end of it all, if nothing else, was this investigative journalist “conspiracy-mongering” back in 2013/14, or right on target? You decide.

THE following info should serve as a basis to why (and how) outspoken patriots and whistle blowers are threatened, served search warrants, roughed up and terrorized for daring to expose what the FEDS – under Obama Inc. – are up to. Indeed, the latest SWAT exhibit will be presented below. However, backdrops are necessary to make the case. Patience.

INTRINSICALLY, many Americans are too afraid to speak out, while others are very vocal in raising their voices. Their messages are mainly disseminated via radio, written platforms or social media outlets. Effectively, they have come to the realization that the authorities have gone over to the “dark side” and can no longer be trusted to serve patriotic interests. But herein lies the danger and the need to “quiet” them down. Simple as that.

IN fact, ever since ISIS attacked in Garland, Texas, the chatter has grown precipitously. In other words, patriots understand that the FEDS knew about the jihadists but did nothing to alert the public. How can this be?

“It be.” Not only that, on May 8, 2015 this investigative journalist presented evidence – as an opening shot to a specific investigation – and it entails: collusion between Obama Inc.’s FEDS, one which ignores jihadists operating in America. The following excerpt is a specific case of Islamic money/gold laundering operating out of Massachusetts: 

IT has come to this investigative journalist’s attention that an ongoing and major money laundering operation – F/B/O Sunni jihadi terror – is housed in a town (its exact name is in abeyance, for now) within Barnstable County, with an offshoot in Hyannis, the largest of its seven villages…

NOW, which group receives an abundance of cash from their laundered money/gold? Well, the HABBASH Group is a main recipient and it is a branch of al-Qaeda in Lebanon. Recall, this information too: ISIS is an offshoot of al-Qaeda, its creator !
MOST significantly, an informant (vetted by an impeccably credentialed counter-terror contact) handed over very detailed information (which is not posted, and for various reasons) with NAMES, ADDRESSES, TRAVEL plans etc to relevant FED agencies. 
THESE agencies include the FBI, the Attorney General’s Office in Massachusetts and the IRS. They all refused to investigate said charges. Why?
CONCLUSIVELY, the following response (going back to Aug. 2011) to said (courageous) informant should serve as prima facie evidence (Exhibit One), attesting to the FEDS utter refusal to even look into the charges, which more than met the criteria for immediate investigation.
The Attorney General of Massachusetts

(617) 727-2200
August 23, 2011
Dear Mr. XXXXX
The Attorney General’s Office has reviewed your recent inquiry to the Criminal Bureau for the purpose of deciding whether to assign this matter within the Criminal Bureau for a more comprehensive review of the facts, make an inquiry on your behalf, or intervene in this matter.
The Criminal Bureau of the Attorney General’s Office receives inquiries and alleged complaints on a daily basis from citizens, police departments and other governmental agencies. Every such inquiry or complaint is reviewed and a decision made whether to take action on the inquiry or complaint. This type of evaluation is necessary because the volume of complaints and inquiries we receive, coupled with the finite resources available, precludes the Bureau from investigating and prosecuting every
allegation that is brought to our attention.
I am advising you that the Criminal Bureau will not be conducting any further review or investigation of your complaint.
I am sorry that this office cannot be of further assistance to you.
Assistant Attorney General
Criminal Bureau
SINCE then, several attempts (most recently, within the first quarter of 2015) were made to re-engage the FEDS by Dave Gaubatz, a premiere counter-terror expert. Nevertheless, it was to no avail…read the whole thing…


BUT never mind, the AG’s abject refusal to investigate wasn’t taken as the final word on the subject. Let’s just say that the entire scope of their malfeasance will be revealed, if they refuse to do the right thing by the American people. It is only a matter of time.

MOVING right along, atop the above info underlies JADE HELM 15, another topic duly explored at this site. In fact, it is likely the most alarming (and revealing) view of what HUSSEIN Obama has in store for America, despite all their shrill protestations to the contrary. 

ADDITIONAL JADE HELM 15 ‘issues’ were amassed at a previous commentary, and they can be found here. 

NOT only that, its planners, including the above referenced mouthpiece, will NOT answer a straight up question re the inclusion of foreign troops – “Currently for Jade Helm it is US only. We, ah, that has been one of the discussions that, uhm, I’m not sure if it has occurred yet.” Lying bastard. Okey dokey too.

TELLINGLY, this particular lie, cum evasion, underlies the core danger. Intrinsically, many alarm bells rang as to the absolute fact that Chinese, Russian and a smattering of E European troops have been training on U.S. soil! Now, anyone who understands what this means also knows that the LAST thing a patriotic POTUS would want is communist troops running loose in the U.S., let alone learning tactics from U.S. command. Ya think?

CONCOMITANTLY, training mock ups (which involved aforementioned foreign forces) were NOT designed along the contours of environments required to battle Mid East jihadists or other known enemies. To the contrary. They are facsimiles of American cities with all the trappings of ‘any city USA’, down to the English street signs! Why?

The U.S. Army has constructed a 300 acre city in Virginia, complete with subways and signs in English, to practice drills for “problems we may not know we have yet,” according to the UK Telegraph.

The troubling part of this mock city is that a recently leaked Army manual contained plans for the military to carry out “Civil Disturbance Operations” where American soldiers would be deployed across the nation to quell civil uprising, even firing on and killing American citizens if the need arose…read the rest here

NOW, it must be understood that the military (special forces included) take their orders from the top down. Therefore, most will obey orders, even the “baddest asses.” In other words, they are the conduits, and nothing more. 

I am a former USMC Staff Sergeant that served at Camp Lejeune NC with 1st Bn 8th Marines. All of the training exercises you have been talking about are all true, I have personally participated in them in Virginia at Fort Pickett and on Camp Lejeune. Camp Lejeune constructed a multi million dollar training facility deep inside the artillery and heavy weapons firing K ranges. Attached are PDF files that I had from training exercises that shows the layout of the facility and the future expansion plans for the MOUT Facility. We were told this was supposed to be Iraq or Afghanistan, but it sure looks like hometown USA to me. It has a complete underground sewer system and many multi story buildings made of western style building materials not half shoddy construction to save money or time or Middle Eastern style. It’s a replica of a small western style town (I’d say American since the signs were in ENGLISH). How many Arabic/Middle Eastern towns in Iraq or Afghanistan have a Baptist church and an American high school in them? They have been training FOREIGN TROOPS at this facility and Federal and Local Law enforcement as well. While I was at Camp Lejeune, I personally saw and talked to many UN, NATO troops, and DHS. I have additional material if you are interested and the training guidelines that the military is training the police/DHS with under DOD Directive 302521.

AND now that it is clear that all is not as it seems, let’s head to the counterweight to their ultimate plans; patriots who refuse to back down. Moreover, a goodly portion are vets too.

THUS, as always, those who are outspoken are the first to be intimidated, you know, the “red lists.”


IN this regard, whistle blowers become the enemy and are treated as such.

ALAS, onto the latest terror tactic against an outspoken patriot:
“Patriot Accused Of Being A Threat To The Gov’t AND Islam.”
YET, before we proceed, please process what the Search Warrant entailed as a “cause of action” – a threat to the gov’t AND Islam!

Early in the morning on April 13, 2015, the SWAT team descended on the home of Shane Schielein in Peoria, Illinois, with the expressed intent of serving a search warrant. They handcuffed him, shoved his wife to the wet grass on the ground outside, and sequestered his children in the kitchen as they proceeded to rifle through his belongings. Shane is the owner of the American Reapers Page on Facebook.

But it is not just the entrance of the SWAT team that was disconcerting, it was that they were looking for any pamphlets, materials, or documents relating to the overthrow of the government or Islam.”

Why would Islam be specifically delineated? To what government are they referring – America’s or an Islamic one?

IT is impossible to overstate what this Search Warrant means for all patriots, be it Shane Schielein or others similarly threatened: EVERY American who has a platform and exposes the dangers emanating from Obama Inc., most especially their attachment to Islam vis-a-vis the Brotherhood Mafia, must shut their traps or they will be dealt with – one way or another!
CONCLUSIVELY, this is a criminal regime which will stop at nothing to effectuate their agenda. To wit, a re-link of “Obama Inc.’s Hit List” is more than efficacious.
Enough said.
