WTF? Why can't I access this website? The Arab version works just fine?! Is that because there has been a 2000% increase in traffic on the site recently, 60% from the US?? Can Al Jazeera not handle the surge, or can the American media not handle honest journalism?

I have to say something. Aljazeera definetely has extremely good coverage of the events. Their reports are very objective. Good Job!
