Does Bush Get His Intels From The Google Earth?

Tue Oct 24, 2006 2:00 pm

Please, please tell me the US does not get their intels from Google Earth.



HOST: I’m curious, have you ever googled anybody? Do you use Google?

BUSH: Occasionally. One of the things I’ve used on the Google is to pull up maps. It’s very interesting to see — I’ve forgot the name of the program — but you get the satellite, and you can — like, I kinda like to look at the ranch. It remind me of where I wanna be sometimes.

Nevermind the fact that one of the few men in history who has access to world-class satellite imagery of almost any inch of this earth is impressed by...Google Earth!

He just says he looks at it to see where he wants to be sometimes, not to see where Osama is.

Google Earth probably has a quicker start-up time than the SuperViewXL (or whatever you want to call the satellite system up there). He can't just commandeer a satellite and use it to look at his ranch. That would be fun though.
I love ASO!

What is wrong when the PotUS looks at Google Earth and views an image of his ranch? He can ask for real time image of really important places anytime it becomes necessary.

What frightens me much more is that the military used outdatred city plans of Belgrade when they erroneously hit the Chinese Embassy. That was when Clinton was President.
