Long Video of Straight of Hormuz Incident

The pentagon has posted a link to a long version of the Straight of Hormuz incident on page with the transcript of the Cosgriff press conference of January 7, 2008.

Unfortunately, the Defense Department has chosen to provide this video a Flash video format embedded in a javascript and SWF files so that there is no direct link to the video. In other words, you can watch, but you cannot download.  The tools I have tried to cirmument this have not worked.  If anyone does successfully download the video, please let me know.
