Does the Government Edit Wikipedia?

There are lots of reports about a new piece of software called WikiScanner that tells someone where the edits on Wikipedia are coming from.  Reports are that the FBI and the CIA are involved in edits.  Hard to believe those organization have agendas when it comes to shaping a truth (as opposed to "the" truth).  An interesting take on government manipulating the message in Wikipedia comes from Dan Froomkin, the Washington Post blogger covering the White House.  Well worth reading.
