I was reading about the recent FireSheep tool. People are saying that it is fine to sniff WPA/2 PSK networks because if you have the PSK, you can decrypt anyone's traffic.

I am wondering if there are any sniffers that actually decrypt and sniff in real time, that would actually allow that sort of attack?

Sure, probably the best known being Wireshark. It's free too!
