Google Earth being used to direct insurgent attacks in Iraq

British army bases in Iraq are possibly facing more precise attacks against their weak spots after army raids on insurgents have shown them using Google Earth images.

The images, less than two years old, show in detail areas of the camps such as tents that are vunerable to attack.

British security services are worried that reconnaisance could be carried out on home based targets.

It shows how the war on terror utilises online technology. Al Qaida and its partners are astute at online PR / propaganda as well as fully taking advantage of the Internet to communicate.

It is a war that is being fought online as well as in the field.
