    Conspiracy numero uno. Rammestein the german techno rock band is acctually an implementation of the german government to get people ready for war. Reason because the germans also have an airbase named rammstein

    Actually, that base is occupied by mostly American troops.

    s0rd3dvis1on, Rammstein took their name from the location (Ramstein) of a German tragedy where 80 people were killed as the result of a crash during an American Air Force flight show. (The literal translation of "ram stein" is a battering ram made of stone.)

    Pay attention pooptart:
    "Google Maps` images of the White House show a digitally erased version of the roof in order to obscure the air-defense and security assets that are in place."

    In other words, the whitehouse picture you have is shopped. Also, why did it take you 5 minutes, when the words "White House" on the site are a link to the picture?

    Step 1: Set up an imaging satellite and take a picture of the entire world.
    Step 2: Wait for phone calls asking to block locations A, B, C, D giving you the location of every important site on earth.
    Step 3: .......
    Step 4: World Domination!

    Hey Baalthazaq, way to not be a complete douche bag.

    The picture I posted is NOT photoshopped. It IS in fact a satelite view from 2006. The reason I didn`t bother clicking the link in the article is because not too long ago I remember viewing the White House with something similiar to Google Maps (can`t remember exactly what) and saw what the article was talking about. When I saw it the whole roof was one tan color and of course I new this was because of security purposes. But recently I came across the picture I had recently posted and when reading this article I remembered the picture, so I posted it.

    And just to confirm, there are numerous White House photos that prove that the picture I posted is not photoshopped.

    You might want to start with the White House Museum. It has countless photos, diagrams, floor plans, and even a 3D model of the White House grounds.

    You should also try The Historic American Building Survey photos from 1992 here

    And by the time I was able to find a site to first host the picture I cropped and THEN post it here took around 5 minutes or so. For whatever reason the hosting site was taking a while and why the f*<k would it matter anyway? Don`t be such a prick and try not to buy into some random article so quickly. It doesn`t provide you with credible information about the White House`s "air-defense and security assets." The White House is right in the middle of D.C. and getting a picture of the roof isn`t hard.

    Area 51 is where the secret recipes for fast foods are kept, it`s where the government comes up with new ways to poison us through fast food. Really, KFC was developed there, and Colonel Sanders, a real Colonel in the black ops dept. of the ASAF went across the land hiding in plain site selling his recipe of doom. Sounds better than a biological warfare testing facility..doesn`t it?

    When they say "Google blocks X" and you say "Well *I* found it", I assumed you mean with Google.

    There are lots of things in that list that only Google seemingly can`t show.
