SAS Attacks Google For StreetView Blunder

Google’s in big, big trouble in the UK, where military chiefs and MPs are furious with the company after a Street View glitch saw images of a top secret military base published on the Web. And it’s not just any military base, it is the headquarters of the UK’s most elite force, the SAS, reports The Daily Mail.

Street View has published detailed pictures of the facility in Credenhill, Herefordshire, which has never before appeared on any maps.Google helpfully marks the facility as ‘British SAS’ on Google Maps and offers users (including, presumably, foreign governments and the Taliban) a chance to take a 180-degree view of the perimeter boundary and a satellite view of the location. You can even see the military ambulance and police car at the gates of the base.
