The laughs just keep coming:

"The CIA has launched a task force to assess the impact of the exposure of thousands of U.S. diplomatic cables and military files by WikiLeaks.

"Officially, the panel is called the WikiLeaks Task Force. But at CIA headquarters, it's mainly known by its all-too-apt acronym: W.T.F.

"The irreverence is perhaps understandable for an agency that has been relatively unscathed by WikiLeaks. Only a handful of CIA files have surfaced on the WikiLeaks Web site, and records from other agencies posted online reveal remarkably little about CIA employees or operations."
It's unsurprising that 'remarakbly little' information on the Company was leaked as the CIA, or a like organization with close ties to it (e.g. Mossad), was likely behind the leak. I already wrote more on this topic here, so I won't delve into now. I'll just say that if there is an actual study conducted by this panel, it will be to gauge the effectiveness of the disinformation leaked to the public.

Then there's the name of this panel... As, apparently, no one in the CIA was aware that the letters WTF are a common abbreviation for 'what the fuck.'

This kind of unbridled arrogance can only mean one of two things... Either the Cryptocracy has completely lost its collective mind, or it truly believes the American public is to far gone to be of any threat whatsoever to it. They're certainly having a good laugh over it either way.

After wondering around a few retailers yesterday in the midst of the holiday season, I would have to concur with the later.


More holiday spirit:

"Mesquite police early Thursday used pepper spray to control an unruly crowd of sneaker shoppers.

"The incident happened at Towne East Mall, where dozens of people had lined up top buy Nike's new Air Jordan 11 Retro, which went on sale at 6 a.m.

Sisters Laurie and Lorraine Martinez, who said they had been in line since 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, described the scene as frightening and chaotic."

"The women said the trouble began when people in line began pushing forward.

" 'At 4:30 the people at the back of line decided to bum rush and run to the doors … As much as we tried to tell people to move, they wouldn't. So [police] started macing,' Laurie Martinez said.

"She also said some people in the crowd were able to force open a door to the shoe store and get inside, although the sisters were not able to enter."
