Response to Missing Michael Hastings:
The reason the “unwritten rules” are sometimes not written, is because they shouldn’t HAVE TO BE. If someone takes you into their confidence, and you lead them to trust you enough that they are candid and bluntly honest with you, and you turn that around and ambush them and destroy their career,Ifind that the height of hypocrisy to then turn intoacrusader about it. The general obviously thought this wasaman of his word, so the “friendship” he thought he had, wasalie, then this journalist used that to burn him, so he could beamartyr now. Amartyr inaMercedez. Hmmm…Wonder if that counts asasell out too? Anyway,Iknow that Michael, who loved being blunt, would have WANTED me to write this about him, right?
