These Web page defacers don't give two hairs off a rodent's backside about the "security of the U.S. infrastructure." What they care about is publicity: the glory of seeing themselves in countless news stories. Their message, if it means anything to them at all, is a rationalization designed to ease their own consciences and perhaps to generate public sympathy for their blatantly criminal actions. If I rob someone at gunpoint, does explaining that I'm doing it to protest against people who commit robberies make it more acceptable? These puerile escapades are hardly a novel approach, and quite frankly, they just aren't news. If the press will ignore these little twerps, they'll probably go away. RGF Robert G.
