    * google maps hiding stuff

    was looking for guantanamo bay on google maps, went to the proper area of cuba to find it and did a search for guantanamo and google says

    Your search for guantanamo around this map area did not match any locations.

    now, keep in mind, its there and i found it. and google still said it didnt match any locations.

    i was checking it out because of researching the situation there and wondering why castro cant just kick the USA out of there, by creating some new law or something.

    Well, i can sort of understand I guess. The military might have told them not to display it. I guess in the interest of American safety.

    Purely a guess, but that would make sense.

    There is no conspiracy.
    Google Maps has no data for Cuba, Bahamas, Mexico or other Central/South American countries.

    Guantanamo Bay, Cuba is on Google Earth.

    Correct, my previous post mentioned both. But it can be found by name on Google Earth so there is no gov't conspiracy with Google to hide it.

    There is an agreement with USA and Cuba signed on 1903, I believe USA has a contract to rent Guantamo bay, they pay I believe $2,000 per year, so they can do whatever they want with their piece of rented island and the whater around.
