QOTD - NSA vs Crypto - What to trust?

I trust AES-256, I trust ECC with non-NSA curves, I trust RSA with keys that are at least 2048 bits.
I suspect they can factor 1024-bit RSA keys in a fairly short amount of time, and some of the success they noted is based on that.
Actually, I'd be shocked and a bit disappointed if they can't.
