CIA Creates Wikileaks Task Force

In light of the recent release of 250,000 U.S. cables by the whistleblowing website Wikileaks, the CIA has created a Wikileaks Task Force, dubbed W.T.F., to track the impact of the cables. The Washington Post was first to report that "Officially, the panel is called the Wikileaks Task Force. But at CIA headquarters, it's mainly known by its all-too-apt acronym: WTF."

The CIA task force is compiled of senior members of the CIA's counterintelligence center and dozen of members from throughout the agency.

The CIA was one of the few governmental agencies affected by the information released by Wikileaks. A former CIA official revealed to the Post that the agency does not "make everything available" to insiders or outsider for that matter. The official stated that "by and large the system has worked."
