    I'm surprised they haven't encouraged Google to black out Google Earth images as well.

    I certainly wont be blaming the Pentagon for that. Do you want your top most military secret to be google out easily? Not just the Pentagon, no other countries' defence forces would allow that.

    I can't get to the actual article, I keep get re-directed to "Forbes says Gates is no longer the world's richest man".

    Anyways, I guess now that google has blocked out any potentially "harmful" images that it's all going to blow over and nothing more is going to come of this.

    Makes you wonder why the Pentagon has not prevented this from happening in the first place.

    I'm glad Google went ahead and did what the Pentagon asked. Situation easily resolved. :)

    I believe Pentagon has a strong reason to maintain its secrecy. National Security should be our top priority these days.

    That is very interesting. If Google is honoring the US, but not other country's wishes, that's pretty arrogant. What if Baidu (Chinese search engine) decided to show info like that of US government installations!
