In his last piece of work before he was killed, some say mysteriously, in his car one year ago today, his novel in waiting found on his computer by his wife was released today.
Hastings was ahead of his time, writing about the media and how they lead the run up to the Iraq war, was well as writing in the Rolling Stone about Bowe Bergdahl 2 years before his release and is now the definitive truth about his capture and background.
Some conspiracy theorist say Hastings was killed due to his infringement upon the establishment, include the story that lead to the firing of General Stanley McChrystal.
Rachel Maddow covered the story last night. RIP Hastings, one of the best reporters of our day.
