Has the worst acronym ever
The CIA has apparently launched a new taskforce to examine the impact of US diplomatic cables and other documents published by Wikileaks.

CIA has dubbed it Wikileaks Task Force, but the spooks in Langley simply call it WTF, which is one of the worst acronyms ever devised, but then again it is probably suitable considering the situation. Few of the leaked documents had anything to do with the CIA, most were embassy cables drafted by junior staffers who obviously never expected their rants and colorful epithets to be seen by the public.
