WTF? OMG, LOL! CIA gives WikiLeaks taskforce naughty name
UK Guardian ^ | 12 22 2010 | Adam Gabbatt

Posted on 12/23/2010 11:41:34 AM PST by tutstar

The CIA has launched a taskforce to assess the impact of 250,000 leaked US diplomatic cables. Its name? WikiLeaks Task Force, or WTF for short.

The group will scour the released documents to survey damage caused by the disclosures. One of the most embarrassing revelations was that the US state department had drawn up a list of information it would like on key UN figures – it later emerged the CIA had asked for the information.

"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 Washington Post reported.

There were instructors at Naval Nuclear Power School who were hired just to teach there. They were not line officers. They were known as direct input limited duty officers.

How appropriate! The CIA can join the rest of us in walking around “bent over.” Perhaps they can find Zero’s birth certificate and aid in getting him impeached so we can all stand upright again before we’re doomed forever.

In the UK a regional broadcaster was due to be named Scottish Highlands & Islands Television.

It was pulled at the last moment.

For real. It wasn’t pointed out to management until the reorg was done. It was quietly dropped about six months later as managment didn’t enjoy the signatures on emails that said BAD ASS
