    I have no problem whatsoever with the CIA or anyone else correcting some of the gross errors you can find on Wikipedia. Besides, many "edits" are simply filling in missing information, not changing things. So what?

    Maybe Wikipedia is just too much competition for the World Fact Book.

    ...and what were they editing? I mean, if they're only correcting the spelling of names and fixing specific dates, that'd be fine... but somehow, I doubt it.
