I believe that "the No Such Agency did it" is too easy - I doubt they 
would be able to keep something that big under wraps for long 
considering how incompetent they are when it comes to security.

My bets are on some type of private actor who wants industrial espionage 
on steroids - blackmailing or bribing key people who work for intel/amd 
to make it seem like ME/PSP is a good idea.
Imagine all the money you could make with that kind of access!
