LOL: The Name of the New Wikileaks Task Force Is WTF

obama wtf LOL: The Name of the New Wikileaks Task Force Is WTFThe fellas at 4chan should get some mileage out of this.

The CIA has started a group to determine the impact of Cablegate, the leak of thousands of U.S. diplomatic cables and military files by WikiLeaks, which is known as the Wikileaks Task Force, or WTF, reports The Washington Post.

WTF is Internet slang for an expression of simultaneous surprise and vexation, appropos of the government’s reaction to the rogue journalism outfit.

Urban Dictionary notes the acronym has become “the universal interrogative particle,” and the Post didn’t feel the need to explain it either, so we imagine the CIA was aware of the entendre. If not, they might want to get online.
