You need some clue, hack, or exploit. Even in the days of Enigma, info gathered in the field about the machines, cleartexts, etc., were vital to success. I don't believe that there is fundamental knowledge that exists only inside NSA that enables them to crack encryption that other people cannot crack or prove a crack exists.

That said, 2048 bit keys are probably not excessive.
