Google Earth – too much of a view?

http://www.worldtribune.com/worldtribune/05/front2453620.076388889.html

This article, “Google Earth images compromise secret installations in S. Korea” partly answers my first question when I found out about Google Earth. How are they handling sensitive satellite data?

Other countries have objected, out of national security concerns:

The White House is censored already. Is the information in Google Earth really easily obtainable by other means as Google suggests?
