Space Shuttle Viewing and Other Dangerously Available Information

Some time ago I wrote an article about how terrorists did not need their own satellites when Google Earth and other products are available. We wonder how they know so much, when in reality with the right searches there is so much information available that makes you wonder why it is there.

You can find sites that track the whereabouts of numerous satellites and space shuttles. You can get detailed views of the earth from space shuttles from Google and other sources. The question is do we, or should we, have access.

Yes many areas are blocked, but is it enough and are they all blocked. And don’t get me started on access to bomb making information and the like.

Is there too much information too freely available? It questions our right to know, but sometimes my liberal beliefs are challenged by such ideas.
