Top US Journalist Attempting To Reach Israeli Consulate Assassinated

A grim report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared by the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) claims that award winning American journalist Michael Hastings [photo top left] was assassinated by a US military drone strike early this past Tuesday morning (PDT) while attempting to reach what he believed would be a safe haven at the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles, California.

Hastings, this report says, was instrumental in destroying the careers of two of Americas top war leaders, Generals Stanley McChrystal and David Petraeus, along with earning the ire of former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton whose top aide, Philippe Reines, told Hastings this past September (2012) to “F**k off” and “Have a good life” after being questioned about Clintons role in what is referred to as the Benghazi Attack which killed 4 Americans in Libya including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

Hastings 2010 Rolling Stone article “The Runaway General” is credited with being the impetus behind the downfall of General McChrystal, and his 2012 BuzzFeed News Service article “The Sins Of General David Petraeus” likewise helped in the savaging of General Petraeus whom Hastings said, “seduced America and should never have been trusted by the American people.”

Interestingly, this report says, GRU “electronic assets” reporting on the assassination of Hastings were conducting “routine operations” in the Southern California region monitoring the US Navy’s testing of an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) known as the ShadowHawk® [see video HERE] [photo 3rd left] manufactured by Vanguard Defense Industries. 
While performing what GRU analysts say in this report were “routine night flight observations” of a small fleet of ShadowHawks® at the US Marine Base Camp Pendleton in Southern California during the early morning hours of 18 June, a single ShadowHawk® broke formation and “sped” towards the Los Angeles whereupon it fired upon a vehicle nearing the intersection of Highland and Melrose avenues at around 04:15 PDT destroying it and, presumably, killing its sole occupant Michael Hastings.

Upon the ShadowHawk® destroying this vehicle, described by eyewitnesses as a Mercedes Benz, this report continues, GRU signal intelligence analysts (SIGINT) identified “at least” 4 cellular communications between this vehicle and the Israeli Consulate located at 11766 Wilshire Blvd, and which further GRU GPS and cellular data analysis revealed Hastings was headed towards at a “high rate of speed.”

As the ShadowHawk® attack upon Hastings’s vehicle occurred with his being only 14.3 kilometers (8.9 miles) from his presumed safety under Israeli protection at their Los Angeles consulate, this report says, even at that early hour many residents were awakened by the explosion providing “excellent” eyewitness testimony which “severely” conflicts with Americas mainstream propaganda organs.

Where the US mainstream media is reporting Hastings’s vehicle was destroyed after it slammed into a tree, this report continues, these eyewitnesses say otherwise, and as has been further noted by the InfoWars News Service who write:

“Photographs of the crash scene… reveal that the car Hastings was in did not experience a high-speed crash. “There is no impact damage to this car. The only damage there is BLOWN OUT in the back, not smashed in the front and it obviously missed the tree as it rolled to a stop,” writes Jim Stone. “This was a Mercedes, not a Pinto, which means it did not burst into flames on its own. One (seldom quoted) eyewitness said the car ‘exploded.’”

Even worse for the American media in their attempt to cover-up Hastings assassination, this report says, was the video taping by Los Angeles based Loud Lab News Service [view raw video HERE] of the assassination site clearly showing Hastings vehicle did not collide with a tree, but was, instead, showing all the characteristics of it being hit by a missile.

As to why Hastings was assassinated this GRU report doesn’t speculate upon, other than to note that the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Hastings “had the CIA in his sites” and Wikileaks is reporting today that: “Michael Hastings contacted WikiLeaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson just a few hours before he died, saying that the FBI was investigating him.”

This GRU report does note, however, that Hastings, during this past week, had “extensive contact” with former CIA and NSA whistle blower analyst Edward Snowden whom many considers the “most wanted man in America” for his releasing of top-secret documents detailing Obama’s growing police state.

The significance of Hastings contact with Snowden, this report says, lies in Obama’s being able to assassinate any American he so chooses without charges or trial, and was this past March (2013) confirmed by US Attorney General Eric Holder, who in a letter to the US Congress stated: “President Barack Obama has the legal authority to unleash deadly force—such as drone strikes—against Americans on U.S. soil without first putting them on trial.”

Raising the greatest fears of GRU analysts, this report concludes, is that Hastings assassination is linked to the upcoming “false-flag event” being planned by the Obama regime that many Russian intelligence experts warn is but “weeks, if not days, away.”
