Skip to comments.WTF? CIA sets up WikiLeaks Task Force
Posted on 12/22/2010 8:31:35 PM PST by bruinbirdman
CIA has set up a task force to be known by the acronym WTF to assess what damage has been done by the mass release of thousands of diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks.
The WikiLeaks Task Force will "examine whether the latest release of WikiLeaks documents might affect the agency's foreign relationships or operations," CIA spokesman George Little said.
Manning was arrested in May and then charged with 'transferring classified data'
Few of the thousands of confidential documents leaked by WikiLeaks were from the CIA, but many were secret communications by high ranking diplomats discussing sensitive questions of world and US affairs.
The task force, headed by the CIA's Counterintelligence Center, is to make an inventory of the leaked cables and will report on the impact of the leaks, particularly regarding the ability to recruit of informants, a source who asked not to be named said.
Some of the leaked documents originated on the protected SIPRNET, or Secret internet Protocol Router Network, which is used to share classified information between different government branches.
The embarrassing saga could lead to a tightening of the rules for sharing, the source said. "The recent WikiLeaks episode points to the serious need for our government to look closely at whether it might be time for need-to-know to make a comeback. . . ."

Bet they had a good laugh behind the scenes when they named that one!
They sure have the priorities in place.
I suggest that the CIA set up a new task force on how to get their head out of their ass. Since the CIA provides our diplomats with a lot of their field intelligence, it is quite obvious that the Wikileak documents have hurt our intelligence operations and operators.
We’ll call this “Task Force Get Our Heads Out of Our Ass”.
The Wikileaks fiasco is Obama’s greatest counterintelligence failure and borders on treason, besides the START Treaty (aka “Disarm America and Let the Red Chinese Rule the World Treaty”)
Ranks close to the idiot US intelligence jerk that did not even know about the latest London terrorist plan and arrests
WTF? This is not a joke?
Satire is dead.
Yeah, I forgot his name already but he sure gave Diane Sawyer and the MSM a jolt with that one, lol.
They seem to have Czars and Task Forces for everything. The sheer mass of government employees is an army in it’self.
Another great SATIRE piece.
Wait a minute. What? It’s true?
I want my country back.
The Obammunist had to hurry up and make homosexuals legal in the military.
Now this guy will claim his civil rights are being violated?
We are so effective that Manning has gained fame as an Assange anointed political prisoner whose status is being investigated by the UN. This while actual political prisoners rot unnoticed in jails in China, Cuba, Burma, Russia, and so on. Our oh so effective CIA makes funny acronyms. Way to go guys!!
Gotta give Diane Sawyer credit fot that interview - She was shocked bigtime!
She would not back off and the expressions on her face were amazing -
If that was not evidence that some in the media are now refusing to cover up for 0pansy......
“How can that beeeee??” Lol
Eh, eh. She thought she was throwing the tool a softball. Of course, she had no follow up.
But the administration is slick, they always send a backup with their toadies, who handled this situation.
The administration's follow up communications will not diffuse the SNAFU with talk radio. (Or the new Republican House Intelligence Committee?)
0pansy counted on his Magic Powers
[0pansy counted on his Magic Powers ]
Well, that doesn’t work, I know, lol.
Going to head off. I’ll get to your email.
Submit this poster boy PFC and Julian to a firing squad and the incentive to leak goes way down.
@ $20 / firing squad X 2 squads, I just saved the tax payers a bunch of money!
There will always be people who want to disseminate leaks from our government. It is the responsibility of the government to protect its secrets. Once they have been compromised, it’s too late to protect them. The State Department was asleep at the switch, didn’t keep up technologically, and their information was stolen. End of story.
A lot of govt agencies are asleep at the wheel or are at the wrong wheel. We should have taken multiple precautions years ago when the first Red Chinese hacker attacks started. They were ignored: the detente mentally of the Bushes, the paid-off clintons, and the totally anti-American, I dont care mentality of the Obama abomination (er Administration).
All this was to be expected and if you thought that it couldn’t happen, then you should have been fired years ago.
THe biggest mistake we have continually made has been to underestimate our enemies, and we have paid for it in many lives (in VN-Laos, the radar site), the USS Cole, WTC I & II, US embassy and Marine barracks in Lebanon, Khobar Towers - Saudi Arabia, etc.
Our leaders have failed us time after time. We need to know why - what mindset they follow that allows this to happen.
Maybe I’ll do a column somewhere on this subject. After 40 years, I know a thing or two about govt mindsets.
They are going to put the barn door hinges under a microscope.

“Bet they had a good laugh behind the scenes when they named that one!”
Ha! I just bet they did...and a good ole time, too!
BTW, it is fitting...
Well now, wait, wasn’t Wikileaks a CIA project? So now it’s investigating itself? Hasn’t anyone noticed how Obama is completely untouched?
I’ve always wanted to post that acronym in a legitimate way. lol
I bet he tasted funny.
And, not like chikken. lol
Another big mistake; voting into power/hiring into power, those who believe we have no enemies; save for American Citizen Patriots, that is.
These people are not just asleep at the wheel. They are decidedly indifferent to America's security.
I live to make dreams come true.
Very fitting, lol!
“I live to make dreams come true.”
Then.......you are my dream come true. ;o)
Oh damn; Keyboard Cat just played me off.
I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
You are one of my favorite FReepers. ;o)
Both feelings are mutual.
Thank you, sweetie! You made my night! ;o)
Tagline come back!
