"The page cannot be displayed".

Five cold and heartless words. Words that bring no relief to the people world wide waiting faithfully. For the fourth consecutive day of this crisis the world has stared at this stark white page and its merciless words.
"Man, that's messed up. How can they do this!", said twenty seven year old Adam Runquist from Los Angeles, California in response to last week's hijacking of Club Obi-Wan, one of the most loved websites on the internet.

“The site was reported off line sometime this morning.” Said White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer. “It is too soon to tell, but we will keep you informed as information comes in”.

National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice in a emergency press conference immediately after the hijacking told reporters, “Little is known about the abduction at this time, but this is a clear and present danger to not only the United States but to civilization as we know it.”

Pentagon spokeswoman Victoria Clarke said in a briefing Tuesday, “The President is committed to the freedom of the people of this site and our job is to provide him with every option to reach that goal.” Clarke declined to speculate if weapons of mass destruction were to be included with those options.
“Coalition troops are in route now” said Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld. “There is no question of the out come. We have the best trained troops in the world. They will prevail in this conflict”.
Democrats, aware of Bush's high approval ratings on the COW crises, questioned the president's agricultural policies but not his war plans.

Secretary of State Colin Powell had strong words for the perpetrators at a fund raiser for inner city children Saturday, 'We're watching you, we've got our eye on you, and there's a price to be paid."

Perhaps President Bush summed it up best himself by saying, “Whatever it takes, as long as it takes. This act will not stand; we will find those who did it; we will smoke them out of their holes; we will get them running and we'll bring them to justice."
