Guess the idea of everyone having access to satellites is a little too open source for countries and their security. Though I understand the complaints these countries have - hell even Australia is on that list - I really think the upside outweighs the bad. Get a couple of secure places recognised and blocked but leave people access to your country.
I don't think Google is blocking views of their own facilities worldwide and they would be just as prime target as any other.
Freedom of information has drawbacks but should not be curtailled just for the sake of it. Give them security but give them maps!
