According to a hacked email from Defense contractor Stratfor that was reported on by San Diego Channel 6’s Kimberly Dvorak, it was former counter terrorism czar and now CIA chief John Brennan—and not Eric Holder’s Department of Justice—who was behind the recently revealed media witch hunt. Per the email, written by none other than Fred Burton, the president of the huge military contractor Stratfor, “Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists…”
Hundreds of phones were tapped and emails gone through at the Associated Press and Fox News, all in a witch hunt to find out who was leaking information that was making the Obama administration look bad. James Rosen, a seasoned reporter at Fox News for years, was even named as an enemy of the state, charged under the Espionage Act. It turned out to be a ploy to get a judge to okay tapping Rosen’s work and personal phone, along with the phones of friends and family members.
Brennan, then as now in charge of Obama’s drone assassination program, has targeted American citizens on foreign soil, specifically the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman, in Yemen, along with five other Yemeni teenagers.
The question is, did Brennan take the witch hunt of journalists to the next level? That is, did Brennan order the assassination of an American journalist? It’s really not that far of a stretch, as deeming an American citizen an enemy of the state, guilty of violating the Espionage Act—as was done with Fox’s James Rosen—carries the death penalty.
According to the widow of Michael Hastings, the Rolling Stone reporter killed in a suspicious car crash, Hastings was working on an exposé of John Brennan. Given that the official story of Hastings’ death is falling apart, do we need to look at John Brennan for answers?
According to the official story, Hastings was traveling at 100 miles per hour when he hit a tree, causing his 2013 Mercedes Benz C250 to explode and burst into flames. San Diego Channel 6’s Kimberly Dvorak contacted a San Diego State University professor of Mechanics to analyze newly unearthed video of Hastings’ vehicle seconds before the so-called crash. The professor stated that Hastings was only traveling 35 miles per hour, not 100 miles per hour as investigators claim. Further, according to Dvorak, a witness states that the vehicle blew up before it hit the tree. The unearthed video seems to corroborate this, as multiple explosions occur prior to the vehicle coming to rest at the base of the tree, not to mention the fact that there was minimal damage to the tree. Further, the engine and drivetrain were ejected several hundred feet from the vehicle at a ninety degree angle to the direction of travel. According to the laws of physics, this is impossible. This proves the vehicle exploded before hitting the tree.
Adding further fuel to the conspiracy fire, Hastings sent out a frantic email hours before his death, stating that he was working on a big story and needed to go into hiding, adding that the FBI was investigating him. When the email became public, the FBI vociferously denied investigating Hastings; but friends of Hastings not only confirm that the FBI was investigating him, but that the FBI had visited Hastings’ home the day before his death!
The question is not was Michael Hastings murdered, but who did it?
Did the head of the CIA—John Brennan—order the assassination of an American citizen on American soil?
Did John Brennan call for Michael Hastings to be tried under the Espionage Act, and did that prove to be too inconvenient for the head spook? Sources close to Hastings state not only that Hastings was investigating Brennan and his rogue CIA agency, but the NSA as well.
Of course, the NSA is playing damage control right now, being caught with their hand in the cookie jar, vacuuming up virtually all electronic communications. Just-opened mega database facility the Utah Data Center is storing virtually all the world’s communications. As revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden, under the two NSA programs—PRISM and XKeyscore—the NSA is gorging itself with virtually everything that travels over wire, fiber optic cables, or satellite: Phone calls, emails, Facebook posts and chats, Skype, financial transactions, travel arrangements, even online web browsing and Google searches.
Did Michael Hastings discover that John Brennan had his hand in this or that he was involved in some other nefarious activity, and this needed to be hushed up fast?
Perhaps this is all a conspiracy theory.
Or perhaps not.
