However, given mil-grade VPNs these days, there is no way they can read what
you sent. They can only tell that you sent something. However, I just
discovered the Steganography stuff in my SuSE Linux distribution, hmmmmm.
But, they still know where it came from and where it went.

As Bruce Schneier said, the problem with steganography is that you need
a good cover story for why you're mailing JPG's of giraffes back and forth...

Porn makes for a pretty good cover-story.
