I think intelligence lined up behind Blue because of the relative options at the time. Hillary was pro war pro spying pro (allthestufftheydo) and Trump was basically pro chaos.

I agree that the current state of affairs looks a lot like the kind of color revolution that intelligence often engineers, but I think you'd be giving them way too much credit to think they could have engineered this one. Engineering this current situation is beyond the capability of mortal man.

Now if you want to get really crazy and wear about ten tin foil hats, I do think that the current situation could have been manufactured by a next level intelligent Singularity, which speaks to the problem with most of the Singularity theorists - they all seem to think that when the Singularity happens that we would somehow know. We wouldn't know.

So that's something to keep you up at night. ;)
