It's where the vice president lives. Also, there's some kind of observatory there. I used to live nearby.

The circle surrounds the grounds of the US Naval Observatory, currently most famous for being responsible for the official time in the US. On those grounds is the Vice President's residence. That may be why it's blurred, given Cheney's preference for "undisclosed locations."

While the Google Earth search for Central Intelligence Agency, McLean, VA pops up an incorrect location, there are a number of correct icons from users and the main street through the campus is called "Central Intelligence Agency" so it's not much of a secret. As far as the view, the actual campus is clear enough to count the cars in the parking lot and even spot a few people on the sidewalks.

the CIA hedquarters is in Langley virginia. On google earth it will show you the building. CIA headquarters is just west of Little Falls Resivoir and has a lot of parking lots around it.
