Google Caves To Feds


Posted March 7, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Fearing a security threat, the government has asked that Google remove Street View images that are taken too close to military bases. The pictures from google were taken on public streets, meaning anyone could take the pictures, but Google listened to the Pentagon anyway.

Gen. Gene Renuart, head of the military command responsible for homeland defense, said, "It actually shows where all the guards are. It shows how the barriers go up and down. It shows how to get in and out of buildings. I think that poses a real security risk for our military installations."

Google spokesman Larry Yu said, "We have been contacted by the military. In those instances where they have expressed concerns about the imagery, we have accommodated their requests."
