WikiLeaks cracks encrypted video

As you all might have heard, WikiLeaks cracked a surveillance video coming from an apache mission where innocent civillians and reporters where killed http://wikileaks.org/

The question remains how did they achieve this?

They started out with a request for computer processing power (http://twitter.com/wikileaks/status/7530875613) and about two months later they cracked the code.

Here some experts about the subject:
