Censorship

The US government is censoring Google Maps/Google Earth.

Try looking up Washington DC. The Capitol building is nothing but a blur, and the White House has a plain, flat brown roof. Several other buildings are blurred out or have solid color roofs. There are other "omissions" that I've found, like the artificial oil pump islands in Long Beach Harbor. The labels are there (in Google Earth), but the islands are missing.

Oddly enough, the Pentagon is there in all its glory, without censorship. As is Cheyenne Mountain. I guess oil is more important than the military. But then again, we've known this for several years now....
