I would like to bring one point into consideration here;
What is the use of blocking out and shading these so called "sensitive" areas? There are many countries out there with advanced satellite imagery
and many come close to the technology the government uses! Including many third word nations! So what’s the use of blocking out these areas? Its
pointless, its just a psychological trick played by the boys in the Pentagon to confuse the citizens and others, I bet the really valuable assets are
in plain sight!!
Also the govt. uses mostly Private satellite imagery, what’s to stop these people from leaking one to the net, I am sure that Area-51 and other such
areas are just a distraction, an enigma perpetuated by us for their benefit!
We all the capabilities of IKONOS, SPOT and OrbView-4! They can almost peek through windows, so if they really wanted they could see the creepy 's
smile from Area51!
If terrorists really wanted satellite imagery of the White House they could easily get it from the Israelis or the French 'SPOT' or the Russians or
the Chinese or the Japanese or the British or the Indians or any of the dozen or so nations which posses remote sensing capabilities!
What good is it to block only US satellite imagery companies from showing sensitive areas when you've got dozens of other countries capable of
possessing the images of similar resolution/quality?
