She actually has a few options:
1. Who knows how much the Archons know about Charlie that Wanda now knows, and Charlie is the master of intelligence gathering... Maybe she'll trick him, or I find even more likely, one of his Archon subordinates that don't know about the conversion that happened to his other Archons... Charlie's secretive nature just might work against him.
There is a movie joke about 3-way telephone calls where girl-1 calls girl-2 while girl-3 is on the line without girl-2's knowledge. Usually it's a device used by girl-1 to destroy a friendship between girl-2 and girl-3. (Characters in the movie usually truncate the term to just "3-way" for comedy's sake so characters and viewers initially misinterpret the meaning. Ahh Hollywood!). And Wanda just ended a 2-way thinkagram that was truncated as 2-way, so I'm thinking Wanda is may try gathering some free intelligence by either tricking Charlie or an Archon Charlie controls into divulging some information "free of charge". I mean, she has a foolamancer right there! Just veil one of the Archons into one of the Archons Charlie still controls, and have a 3-way thinkagram with Wanda on the line listening in as a veiled Archon tricks some Archons into thinking Charlie just gave them a scouting assignment, or simply trick Charlie into thinking he's talking to one of his favourites.
2. That seems waaaaay to elaborate for Wanda's thinking to me, so, much more simply: Find an enemy scouting unit that already scouted this turn, croak em, decrypt them, and the position of everything they scouted that turn they now know... Not sure if they would know the position of the other scouting units or what they've scouted so far, but it should be worth a shot, simple yet effective...
EDIT: Gaa, I took forever to write this and someone already pre-empted me on the #2 possibility... Ahh well, what-cha gonna do? Here is my post in all it's redundant glory!
EDIT2: Also, I seem to have forgotten to add my long term prediction. I see an "attack of the pod people" type plot developing eventually with the archenpliers. Some of Wanda's "allies" may have some... Conflicting interests... She just may kill one, decrypt them, but avoid telling anyone she has done so...
Hell, she may just as well find a lone scout, decrypt them, but make sure he doesn't break alliance with jetstone! True to an "attack of the pod-people" type plot, the pod people act as they normally would, you don't know who the pod-people are... But provided the pod people can 1. Get someone killed and 2. Transport their corpse to Wanda... As usual, the pod people will make more pod people... The best pod-people style movie is of course John Carpenter's The Thing. Made in 1982.
