Election meddling and who engineered it? 

The answer is simple as stated by the stable genius.  "A four hundred pound dude living in his mom's basement."  For the simple, the simplistic solution always works best.

US does not need professional or dedicated INTEL patriots when it has the 'hair man' in charge. 

Besides, now the American betrayal of the Kurds seems as distant as the era of 'The Stormy Who'.  Trumpism moves at light speed.

Note that the intelligence agencies are not saying that Russia was the only foreign country or foreign entity meddling in the election.  There are a host of lobbyists in Washington representing many different governments and foreign interests.  It's all quite legal as long as a hired political mercenary does the meddling.  And there are a number of activists groups in the United States promoting foreign interests, too.

Also note that the intelligence agencies are reporting after the deed was done.  The report is that Russia did meddle in the election.  The intelligence agencies did not prevent Russian meddling and did not protect the election.  Part of the motivation for hair-on-fire reporting is to cover up the failure of the intelligence agencies to protect the election and protect the country. 

What is the public getting for all the tax money being spent on intelligence activities?  The article highlights only eight intelligence groups and there are at least three times that many.  All the reporting about Russian meddling in the election shows that our intelligence groups and agencies didn't do their job.  The intelligence agencies cannot plead poverty so the only adequate explanation is incompetence.  Throwing more public money at intelligence agencies and activities won't fix institutional incompetence. 

Everyone is shouting that Russia did it.  But what is not being said is that the government's intelligence agencies failed to prevent it.  It's too late to yell 'fire' after the forest has burned.
