and in some backroom at the NSA
chief: great, so that encryption thing is all sorted?
spook: Yes sir, world+ dog are all convinced that all existing encryption is somehow flawed and are ready to switch to something better.
chief: and we have the better solution deployed?
spook: yes, we have been working with the security experts and university types for years. No one will ever suspect a ROT13 encoded message in the midst of all that gooblygook, and it passes all the decryption tests. It really is impossible to decrypt all the random garbage surrounding the actual messages.
chief: excellent, and how about that Snowden fellow, has he been taken care of?
spook: Of course, just like you wanted, a large payout from our secret account, a nice villa in nowhereistan, and a terribly tragic accident when he fades from the limelight.
chief: great news, and the best part of all is that all of the other countries are onboard with this they are all expressing their outrage and righteous indignation as planned.
spook: and the sheeple don't suspect the thing.
