India Latest To Object To Google Earth
from the late-to-the-party dept
Two months after a few other countries raised objections to Google Earth, India has jumped on the bandwagon. The time may be different, but the objections are the same — terrorists or enemies could use the images to plan attacks. The response is pretty much the same, too: the risks are being blown out of proportion. Last month, a senior officer in the Indian military even downplayed the risks of the images, saying that since they weren’t real-time, they weren’t of much value.
