THE CIA AND DIEBOLD EDITED WIKIPEDIA ENTRIES

The CIA has turned up on a list of groups that have edited entries on the popular online encyclopedia Wikipedia. According to Wikipedia Scanner, a user logging on from the CIA's web domain made edits to the entry for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The controversial voting-machine company Diebold has also been caught making changes. In 2005, a Diebold computer was used to remove paragraphs describing chief executive Walden O'Dell as a top fundraiser for President Bush. Paragraphs and links referring to voter fraud in the 2000 elections were also taken down.
