It seems to me highly likely that they do. After a bit of googling and
reading, wouldn't anyone serious about operational security know that PGP
was an important and useful tool?

And if your threat model consisted of the most powerful system of
surveillance ever created, which routinely facilitates extra-judicial drone
assassinations throughout the world, wouldn't you imagine that they would
be pretty serious about trying to get security right?
