The best and brightest

AP: "Inside story: How Russians hacked the Democrats' emails"
A malicious link was generated for Podesta at 11:28 a.m. Moscow time, the AP found. Documents subsequently published by WikiLeaks show that the rogue email arrived in his inbox six minutes later. The link was clicked twice.

Podesta’s messages — at least 50,000 of them — were in the hackers’ hands.
As somebody once asked: is it really "hacking" when all you need to do is find somebody dumb enough to click on such an obvious phishing scam?
