Super secret dark sites do not appear on the top500 list of super computers.

I've been told by a source I trust that the NSA have a large supercomputer cluster that would easily be in the top 20 which is just used for breaking cryptography. They keep extending it by buying clusters of this machine type as they get decommissioned, re-engineering them and then adding them to the cluster.
