    The writers of this piece are totally lost. First, Google Earth is simply a browser for geographic information. Google had nothing to do with the creation of this layer- anyone can make such a layer for viewing in Google Earth, they way someone can create a website for viewing in microsoft internet explorer.

It sounds like the writers could not find any important topics (mass rape in Congo, for example) to cover so resorted to fabricating a catchy story out of thin air.
