Wikipedia Distributing Child Porn, Co-Founder Tells FBI

But the threat is even greater than the images themselves, says James Marsh, an attorney who wrote about Sanger's letter to the FBI on his Child Law Blog.

"Wikipedia's continued interest in child sexual exploitation is troubling not only because the site hosts some questionable images, but because it can easily serve as a gateway to other sites containing child pornography," Marsh told FoxNews.com.

"One simple link buried in the text of an article on Japanese anime or child pornography could easily take an unsuspecting child or adult user to a place which is not only disturbing, but illegal."

"The real issue for Wikipedia and sites like it is who is monitoring the content? Who is accountable? And who exactly is responsible? Anonymous editors and contributors and a complete lack of transparency presents a real risk of uncensored content being distributed worldwide."

Marsh thinks things are more serious than Sanger suggests.

"As Wikipedia becomes an authoritative source in law, politics and news, it makes a great target and medium for people with all kinds of questionable agendas," he said.

"Wikipedia is like the Wizard of Oz. You never know exactly who is standing behind that green curtain. And that's the real risk here."
