Google has come under fire for compromising the national security of the United States with satellite images of secret military bases.





au.news.yahoo.com...


And I think they should. It seems that when it comes to common sense Google doesn't have a google of it.

Wouldn't the same hold true for revealing secrets of potential enemy countries?
Besides, I doubt Google shows anything that said potential enemy satellites haven't already picked up!

I think that it would depend on where google is based but perhaps for the sake of international interest it would keep it's mouth shut about what it sees.

I guess since the US is on the offensive and think they own the world they are complaining about Google cause they are afraid one of the countries they are bullying is gonna find something out on Google earth and take them down a peg or two.

Which in my opinion is exactly what they need, actually it should be about a half dozen pegs, but one or two would suffice I guess.

WTF? If they are concerned about about National Security then why go on record and chastise Google? All that does is keeps the news cycle going while drawing even more attention to the issue than if they had kept their mouths shut.

This is not the first time google has done something like this. A few years back they put updated images from the naval base in Groton CT, which is where our subs are based. The images contained a clear shot of the subs propeller, whose design is classified.

I have noticed that the focus always seems to be on the US. I would like to see the people with the eagle eyes that finds this stuff work their magic on Russia or China.

And that's a good point. If they're not making the secrets of other nations known but just that of the U.S isn't that espionage rather just fighting a system?

As far as I know Google uses commercially available photos, so anyone that pays for them can get the photos, so I don't see why accuse Google of any wrongdoing.

Unless they were warned about the areas that they could not show and for some reason they appeared online.

The general public was able to use Google's Maps program to search for the bases, and then zoom in to see airstrips and "possible top-secret military drones", according to reports.

"The discovery of a hidden airstrip at Yucca Lake in Nevada, which is used for testing the R-170 drones similar to the one lost in Iran last week, has raised further concern," Britain's Daily Mail said.

Retired Air Force colonel Cedric Leighton said Iranians would be "most interested in operational bases because that tells them how we fly our surveillance missions".

"Google is making public what was once the sole province of the military and intelligence community, making this a brave new world for the intel agencies as well," he told Fox News.

Col. Leighton said that although Google had the right to show the images to the public, they should opt not to because they comprised military operations.


sounds like the military throwing their weight around, making stuff up, it's an inconvenience, L
L, as if the locations of these drone baser can't be found out

unless you use google earth


probably just noise to make the pajama people forget iran now owns a brand new american drone to tinker with.

personally i consider these drone pilots to be utter trash,even lower than soldiers, who at least risk being killed when they are killing,raping and looting

Well you know the old saying "What go's around comes around" The military and Federal Government has been spying on Joe citizen and what he or she eats for breakfast everyday so to speak. I guess they got a dose of their own medicine. I guess I would say to the Feds and the Military....SUCKS DON'T IT!
