“A high-speed, single car accident at 4am, with an impact so hard the car engine flies out of the chassis and the vehicle explodes into a flames? Combine that with the fact that his colleague and close friend states that in the weeks leading up to the crash he (Hastings) had been "extremely agitated"?

“The problem is that the facts are hard to come by, and people form their opinions based on misinformation pushed by the media, the administration and the military-industrial complex.
There is a HUGE amount of waste in what we loosely call our "defense" budget - a bloated, top-heavy military bureaucracy, and weapons systems that are obscenely over budget/obsolete/unoperational/all of the above yet impossible to kill, but the public is prevented from knowing about it because neither the DoD and Dept of Homeland Security are subject to audits or any real oversight.
Diana Rasor has written several excellent pieces on this issue for Truthout. Check them out, if you can.”
