Google Earth has many uses. But it also raised a lot of online security issues for some countries. It was thought that Google Earth is a tool that can be used to infiltrate a nation and its terrain. Although that might have some bits of controversy in it, it has not been proven at all.
As a security protocol, some countries have requested Google to blur out areas of their country especially the parts where their military bases are located. That is why you will find that in some images that you see on Google Earth, there are obscured places.
