For a human to read all communications would be an impossible burden.

Instead, apply the following algorithm.  Identify people of interest.  
Read communications between persons of interest.  If several people of 
interest talk to Bob, then Bob may well also a person of interest. 
/Then/ read their communications.  If significant, add Bob to the list 
of people of interest.

Looking at communication patterns, Identify the more central nodes among 
people of interest.  Make a special effort to crack the communications 
of the most central nodes.

The technological counter to this is the cypherpunks remailers, which 
are unfortunately user hostile, especially when used with a permanent 
identity.
