Signs of the Times Quick Guide The following timeline describes just a few of the hundreds of atrocities and crimes committed by the CIA.

Essentially a wiki war is an ‘edit war’ that occurs on Wikipedia. It happens when editors disagree on article content. The ‘war’ is when many points of view engage in three dimensional chess strategies with each other using Wikipedia policies or admin support to block editing permissions to those with opposing viewpoints, or how veteran Wikipedia contributor David Gerard puts it – “battles to the death for insanely low stakes”. It can be a seriously nasty business, and I’m skeptical that the stakes are so small. The general public is not aware what serious business it can be, because these activities are ‘buried out in the open’ in WikiMedia’s software system.

Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable.

Charlie Hebdo investigator took own life hours after attack: report The Associated Press, Paris Wednesday, 14 January 2015 France ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing Wednesday that 54 people had been arrested for those offenses since terror attacks left 20 dead in Paris last week, including three gunmen. The order came as Charlie Hebdo’s defiant new issue sold out before dawn around Paris, with scuffles at kiosks over dwindling copies of the satirical newspaper that fronted the Prophet Muhammad anew on its cover. France has been tightening security and searching for accomplices since the terror attacks began, but none of the 54 people have been linked to the attacks.

Evidence of a US judicial vendetta against WikiLeaks activists mounts I knew when I put down my name as co-producer of a video, released by WikiLeaks, showing United States soldiers shooting civilians in Baghdad from a helicopter that my life would never be the same. Telling the truth during times of universal deceit might be considered a revolutionary act, but only to those who want to keep us in the dark, not by those who feel compelled to do so. Most of us who expose an inconvenient truth know that we will be attacked for it and ridiculed. And every trick in the book of maintaining power will be applied to silence us. It's no big deal.

CIA launches task force to assess impact of U.S. cables' exposure 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.
