CIA Creates WikiLeaks Task Force

Views

The Central Intelligence Agency has created a new group dedicated to analyze the impact of WikiLeaks on the United States’s foreign relationships and the agency’s operations. The name of this new department is the WikiLeaks Task Force. WTF indeed.
CIA officials say that they are already making an “extensive inventory” of all the information released by WikiLeaks so far. The panel is being driven by the CIA’s Counterintelligence Center, but “has more than two dozen members from departments across the agency.” [Washington Post]
