The CIA gets the prize for the most entertaining acronym in Washington, a city that cannot speak without using at least one in every sentence.
The CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) has formed the WikiLeaks Task Force which is being referred to in-house as WTF.
(If you don’t get it, ask a teenager).
TWP (The Washington Post) said the irreverence might be understandable since the agency was fairly unscathed by the WikiLeaks document extravaganza.
UPDATE: A USO (unidentified U.S. official) tells us: “Some might say the acronym is regrettable. Perhaps we should consider that the CIA has a sense of humor after all.”
The revelation of WTF sent us ISO (in search of) other Beltway initials that might top it in amusement value — NFY (none found yet — OK we made that one up).
