Many of us have questioned some of the response targeting Wikileaks and the dangers that they pose to journalists and free speech on the Internet. The CIA, it appears, agrees: naming its effort the “Wikileaks Task Force” or WTF.
Fortunately, with the re-naming of the Wisconsin Tourism Federation, the name is now available.
The agency will now have WTF staffers working overtime to deal with Assange and those who want to get this material to the public.
This reminds me of the old section in the Environmental Division of the Justice Department Leaking Underground Storage Tank office or LUST office. There was even a LUST fund controlled by Justice in 1986. The Reagan Administration so to it that it was called UST out of concerns that lawyers were introducing themselves as LUST specialists working for President Reagan.
