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 “do not pose a serious threat to security.�
Another army officer, who wished to remain unidentified, agreed.
“Everyone knows where the (Indian) president’s palace is, everyone knows how many rooms it has — these details are there in school books. As for the location, there is no mystery about that either.�
