Georgia off the Map

Georgia's map is blank on Google. Hmmmm.

Link via Instapundit.

The US media has been eerily silent on the recent situation in Georgia; it was a welcome change to listen to BBC News on the way to work this AM and actually here a discussion going on.

But the US media has Michael Phelps to talk about, so I guess they're too busy ...

UPDATE: At 1:00pm today the Headline News anchor referred to the country as "the former Republic of Georgia". Poor reporting, or is the teleprompter operator rooting for Putin?

UPDATE 2, 7:15 PM: From what I've read today, people are suggesting that (1) this map never had any more information on it or (2) Google took down the information to avoid helping anyone in the conflict. No clue what's true, but interesting ideas both.
