I'm inclined to think this is a computer screw up, but here goes:
Current GE image dated 12/03/2011

Interesting. I suppose it could be a glitch,but at the same time it wouldn't surprise me if it was delibrately done.

I think when they want to hide something, they blur it. I suspect that is so the casual observer doesn't see a black blob and then starts a conspiracy theory. You can miss a blur. In fact in desert areas where they "grub" the land (rip out the surface organics prior to gradings, or perhaps to build a radar berm), the area looks blurry due to a lack of scrub brush. I've seen spots near the Tonopah Test Range that look artificially blurry. Then again, Google Earth is a combination of imagery sources.

Even when you look back to the structures on the older imagery, it is basically a WTF? Two walls? A maze?

It's an obvious glitch. Nothing secret here. That area is the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) training area. It is visible to anyone driving along the nearby road, and is right across from the heavily trafficked entrance to NASA Dryden Flight Research Center. During an explosives safety class several years ago, I got to detonate a half block of C-4 at the training area. "Fire in the hole!"
