    Curtis,

    Not focusing on the legal aspects for the moment, I think one can even more strongly argue than you did that the US is underprepared on cybersecurity. Allow me to borrow from the Journal’s story:

    The U.S. government has known about the flaw since the U.S. campaign in Bosnia in the 1990s, current and former officials said. But the Pentagon assumed local adversaries wouldn’t know how to exploit it, the officials said.

    (emphasis added)

    So it’s not that we can’t encrypt the video feed. It seems more that our military (and, by proxy, our intelligence services) are operating on flawed assumptions. If our assumptions are inaccurate, won’t our responses spiral off the mark as well?
