Once again, my condolences to Elise Jordan and the Hastings family. My tribute to Michael, Elise, and Andi can be found in my 135 page post, "More Lies Borne Out By Facts, If Not the Truth" --The New York Time’s Disingenuous Obituary of Michael Hastings & Their Whitewash of Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s Role in “Le’Affair Rolling Stan” & “The Pat Tillman Story,” at the Feral Firefighter blog (my take on the car crash is in Appendix G & H). During her Piers Morgan Interview, Jordan said: “It was absolutely ridiculous and totally classless. … If the obituary writer had bothered to go back and read the [DoD Rolling Stone] report, she would see what she put out there actually was factually inaccurate, I still feel very strongly that we should have a retraction, but clearly the New York Times management can’t step up to the plate and admit they made a mistake.” Ending her review of his great book about Gen. McChrystal & the Afghan War, “The Operators,” Kelly Vahlos wrote: “The overwhelming feeling is, well, sadness. … a million film plots of mortal men who flew too high and came down with a crash. The rest … is just plain sad.”
