Govt agencies get in on wikipedia whitewashing act

As everyone knows, wikipedia has been in the news recently because several large corporations got caught scrubbing their wikipedia entries — Wired is keeping track of the most shameful wikipedia spin jobs. Well now it’s been shown that the CIA and FBI has gotten in on the act. Anyone got the time to use Wikiscanner to see what other government agencies are scrubbing their wiki images?
