Google Earth and homeland security

I came across this article in Wired. The article points to the downside of Google Earth -- namely that it could be used by potential terrorists to plan attacks. The Indian minister cited in the article felt that developing countries were singled out for high resolution photos.

How does this tie in to the upcoming WSIS? Should an issue such as this be included in the idea of "Internet Governance", as we discussed in class?
