That document is fake.   It was an April Fools joke based on a real
document.   Refer to:

TrueCrypt can be assumed "ok" based on Greenwald using it.    If Snowden
knew of a hole in TrueCrypt then Greenwald would not be using it.  IMO.

It suggests that TrueCrypt has a backdoor.  Has anyone found anything to
suggest that claim is true?

Do we operate as if it does?
