In Memory of Michael Hastings: His CSPAN Interview

Michael Hastings was killed on Tuesday by the US government. His death puts the lie to the claim that spending 80 billion dollars a year on National Security makes us safe. Maybe he would have lived longer if the NSA did not have a copy of all our phone calls and emails.

Please remember that the federal government has a list of eight million Americans to be rounded up in case of a national emergency. Those eight million people are on that Core List. If Rachel Corey had survived Israel, she would be on that list. If we ever get control of out government, I would ask that a letter suitable for framing be sent to all 8 million people on the list thanking them for their service to our country and to freedom.

We never really had a chance to know Michael Hastings. He had been a writer for Rolling Stone. He was married in May of 2010. I remember his interview with General Stanley McChrystal but knew nothing else about him.

This CSPAN interview is about his book The Operators which is his  account of the war in Afghanistan. The book does tell us a lot about the military and the war. The Pentagon has 27,000 public relations people to sell war. One general in Kabul has more pr men on his staff than America has correspondents in country.

If he had lived, I would love to have seen him do an interview with General Hamid Gul, the retired Pakistani head of their intelligence services. I would also like to have seen him write about America’s drone war in Pakistan after having been there to talk to survivors.

(Update: That original video was taken down. I found this interview about his book on RT.)

About horse237

I have decided to share two of the visions I had as a child. When I was eight, I had a vision of a future war that killed 99.5% of the world's population. When I was 16 and living in the projects, I had a vision of my future. I was to live in complete obscurity until it came time to stop WW III. When I was about ten, I had read a bio of Nikita Khrushchev which said he survived Stalin by playing the bumbling fool an old Russian peasant trick. I decided to do the same as I had already learned that we did not live in a democracy. The other vision I had when I was in third grade was of the Mind of God and how it interacted in the creation of the world we see. I believe you and I were born at this time precisely so we would have an opportunity to stop this war. As for my personal info, I grew up on military bases and in housing projects. My legs atrophied from starvation as a child. My second step-father died in prison. I used to have to rub my skin to simulate human contact. They did not feed me when I was a child. I do not fight in their wars as an adult.

      When Don Bowles was killed with a car bomb in Arizona, 40 news organizations sent reporters to cover it. Today none even treat the death of Hastings as a murder.

    Standing alone, as far as I know, http://www.NoDisinfo.com this week posted DrKresearch’s findings that Hastings is probably alive, and that the car ‘accident’ was a hoax. Please take note.
