Be Scared...Very, Very Scared

Bruce Schneier's blog has an interesting post about California lawmakers wanting to ban providers of aerial imagery from showing unblurred photos of various buildings. Bruce points out the problems with the Security Through Obscurity model.
Yes, and the same technology that allows people to call their friends can be used by terrorists to choose targets and plan attacks. And the same technology that allows people to commute to work can be used by terrorists to plan and execute attacks. And the same technology that allows you to read this blog post...repeat until tired. Source: Schneier On Security

Looks like another case of misguided political theater.
