Wikipedia Plagiarism and Bias?

From Michael Parenti:

The issue was joined in 1956-57, when armed Tibetan bands ambushed convoys of the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army. The uprising received EXTENSIVE assistance from the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), including military training, support camps in Nepal, and numerous airlifts.

Compared to Wikipedia:

In 1956-57, armed Tibetan guerrillas ambushed convoys of the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army. The uprising received a WEAK assistance from the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), including military training, support camps in Nepal, and several airlifts.

Selective Wikipedia plagiarism = pro-American propaganda = anti-Chinese propaganda?
