Indian Army Sees Threat in Google Earth
The Indian army is a little freaked-out that Google Earth shows satellite images of their strategic installations.
Of course, governments around the world didn’t already have access to these images until Google Earth. 😉
UPDATE: The Indian military didn’t consider this much of a threat back in October.
An Indian Navy source said the pictures in themselves â€œdo not pose a serious threat to security.â€?
Another army officer, who wished to remain unidentified, agreed.
â€œEveryone knows where the (Indian) presidentâ€™s palace is, everyone knows how many rooms it has â€” these details are there in school books. As for the location, there is no mystery about that either.â€?
