"Michael Hastings conspiracy theories: Web goes wild after NSA, CIA reporter killed in crash":
". . . Hastings wrote in his book, "The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan," that he received a death threat from a former McChrystal staff member.
"We'll hunt you down and kill you if we don't like what you write," the staffer threatened, according to Hastings, who calmly responded: "Well, I get death threats like that about once a year, so no worries."
Hastings went on to say: "I wasn't disturbed by the claim. Whenever I'd been reporting around groups of dudes whose job it was to kill people, one of them would usually mention that they were going to kill me.""

"Michael Hastings' death: I'm glad that's all cleared up" by Steve Sailer. One of the comments:
"The engine was FORCIBLY EJECTED from the car upon impact, landing several dozen feet away. This alone should raise red flags as to the "accidental" nature of the collision. Quoth auto blogger Jack Baruth, ""I’ve seen dozens of cars hit walls and stuff at high speeds and the number of them that I have observed to eject their powertrains and immediately catch massive fire is, um, ah, zero. Modern cars are very good at not catching fire in accidents. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is an evolutionary design from a company known for sweating the safety details over and above the Euro NCAP requirements, should be leading the pack in the not-catching-on-fire category. Nor is the C-Class known for sudden veering out of control into trees and whatnot.""
