South Koreans Unhappy with Google Earth over Military Base Exposure - 09/02/05 06:02 PM

Authorities in South Korea have expressed concern at how satellite images of their more sensitive military installations have become accessible to North Korea thanks to Google Earth.

The South Korean government plans on "raising concerns with US authorities" following media reports of "images of the presidential Blue House and military bases" appearing via the free software.

On the page of the source of the story they have a link down the bottom that reads: "Google spots Jesus in Peruvian sand dune".
Has anyone checked this out. I have and its really there on my google earth. Then again I wouldnt be suprised if the people at google added that in for kicks. Its not unlike them to play pranks.
