US Intelligence agencies have a new tool, their own top-secret version of Wikipedia.  Allowing 16 agencies to share information between each other, this could be a major help to investigators.  CNet has some more information on this project, which should be more reliable than it's open submission cousin.

"The office of U.S. intelligence czar John Negroponte announced Intellipedia, which allows intelligence analysts and other officials to

collaboratively add and edit content on the government's classified Intelink Web much like its more famous namesake on the Web.

A "top secret" Intellipedia system, currently available to the 16 agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence community, has grown to more

than 28,000 pages and 3,600 registered users since its introduction on April 17. Less restrictive versions exist for "secret" and "sensitive

but unclassified" material. "
