Big Brudder Is Changin' My Wiki

According to the Huffington Post:
Wiki Scanner, a tool that tracks changes to Wikipedia and identifies the server used to make them, tells us that someone in the Pentagon changed the definition of terrorism. Someone in the CIA cast doubts on Iraq casualty figures. And someone in the Department of Homeland Security altered entries for George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, deleting all references to their histories of problem drinking.
The terrorist definition was broadened, adding legitimacy to our government's deciding to add the Iranian Revolutionary Army to the list of "terrorist organizations"--the first time a government military group has been labelled such. And, of course, the war in Iraq can't be THAT bad if the casualty figures are incorrect. And finally, Bush and Cheney, our esteemed leaders, can't have EVER overimbibed! They're too godly.

So Orwellian.
