Israeli Concerns about Google Earth

Israel, like many countries, worries about the availability of satellite information via Google Earth. The ease with which military, terrorist or other radical groups could use such information for targeting and intelligence is real.

The opinion piece from does conclude with the only viable solution: Adapt.
"All that is left for us to do is internalize the fact that we are transparent and take it into consideration when we undertake any kind of military activity. Just like we got used to the fact that cellular phones are one of the major means for leaking information, we must get used to the notion that the most secret facilities are no longer that secret – and conduct ourselves accordingly."
Like many disruptive technologies, adaptation is the only effective answer.
