Brilliant: Google street view exposes top secret IDF base

A top secret IDF base in Tel Aviv has been exposed by Google Street View.
Journalist and new media consultant Yossi Dorfman revealed in his blog that a secret Tel Aviv-area base has been fully exposed by Google's new service. The images allow users to see the guard post at the entrance to the base, several soldiers inside it, and vehicles parked in the base with their license plates clearly visible.

A veteran officer who saw the images said their availability on the Internet constitutes security damage for Israel.

"This is a first-rate screw up…much can be learned from these images, and someone in the IDF whose job it is to monitor this issue screwed up here," the officer said.
What could go wrong?

Shocking! But that said, I love the fact that street view has come to Israel and last night I spent a good hours exploring the beaches in Haifa - almost like being there!
