Pretty hard to see this as an accident given the info available and his next journalistic target. http://www.sandiego6.com/story/cia-director-brennan-confirmed-as-reporter-michael-hastings-next-target-20130812

Several videos on youtube showing how easy it is for someone to hack into your cars computer controls and the driver is screwed .

I would like to hear a legitimate argument to the contrary if there's one out there.

I don't know and sadly, I do believe that Obama is that much of a low-life to possibly be responsible for something like this.

What the Hell, nobody until now has claimed any Obama involvement.  Ctc may be the biggest bigot on Earth.

If it was an accident there should be a legitimate explanation for the explosion prior to impact and how the speeding theory has been debunked.

You believe everything you read don't you.  Oh wait, you are a Biblical literalist, of course you do. ;D

Here is an article on the subject where that includes an analysis by a physicist, Dr. Stephen Granande. It's important to note that his analysis was written before the video of the accident was released which shows that (1) he was not traveling at a high rate of speed, and (2) that the fire/explosion took place before impact. http://jalopnik.com/why-cars-explode-into-fireballs-and-why-they-usually-do-560552028

We'll see if the resident pseudo scientist can connect the dots.

I believe it's pretty smart on her part to not stoke the fire. Regardless of what she really thinks or doesn't think, I'm betting that she's not going to get too lippy considering what just happened.

It is untrue that there is a video showing the explosion occurred before the impact.  The opposite is true.

BTW, you as the conspiracy nutjob are the resident pseudo scientist.
