Before wiki instituted controls on who could edit certain pages, it was regularly edited by all kinds of people with agendas: Politician's staffers/aides, trolls, national int. services, political parties, etc.

It is why they have had to institute new policies on editing.
-----------------
People should not utilize wiki as their main source of information though. Wiki is internet cliff notes, which often includes laymen opinons thrown in...... but, it can be a good source that leads to more credible sites and information.

Did you even care to read the article you posted?

It did NOT say the CIA was involved with the editing of Wiki pages.
It DID say that someone with access to a CIA computer made an edit.
The edit was  "On the profile of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the tool indicates that a worker on the CIA network reportedly added the exclamation "Wahhhhhh!" before a section on the leader's plans for his presidency." (Hahaha)

Now this sounds more like a juvenile prank than a dastardly plot as you are implying.
The CIA must have the software tools to cover their tracks if they wanted to do anything substantial.
And the article definitely does not suggest this.
