    Other projects have used volunteer CPU time but never something of this calibre nor potentially something they can get in trouble for, I don't think the US will take this lightly... they have serious beef with wikileaks as it is, they will make/find a scapegoat.

    Good on wikileaks, terrible video - needed to be shown to the world. I would love to see what happened in the friendly fire cases based on the content of this.

    if a voluntary organisation like that can pool the resources to brute force military encryption
    The first time Julian Assange (the key wikileaks bloke) came to my attention it was on crypto lists way back and he was touting a relatively novel idea for back then called Plausibly Deniable Encryption... it could all be one big anonymity protecting smokescreen, but if not then I'd assume the encryption was conventional i.e. not some top-secret special "military" stuff.

    Look up GPU hacking.. if you replace a MOD server that hacks with a GPU server you could BF hack in hours not months.
