That already made the rounds where I work (and where we have a professional interest in this.) The insurgents used COTS software to monitor a clear (unencrypted) feed from the States back to the field. Why that was ever sent in clear is unknown to me, but apparently that was always the case. It is no longer being sent without encryption.
