I’m convinced this is significant. I just don’t know why.

The Web portal Lycos reported that “Al-Jazeera” and variant spellings became its top search term last week, with three times more searches than “sex.”

Three times? And the airing of Allied dead and captured is being referred to as “war porn” in some outlets. What does it mean? I thought it was all about the oil. But is it really something more sinister?

In the same story there’s this:

Hackers also homed in on Al-Jazeera, bringing down its website early last week in what the Web host called an attack characterized by a flood of bogus traffic.
Hackers calling themselves the “Freedom Cyber Force Militia” later diverted visitors to the English site to a page with a U.S. flag.
The managing editor of Al-Jazeera’s English site, Joanne Tucker, said it would be back up by Wednesday and that steps were being taken to make the Web pages impervious to hacking attempts.

Impervious to hacking attempts? That sounds less likely to be true than the massive Allied casualties that Iraq TV claims to have inflicted so far.
