for the Government to read such

Probably since noone believed that, they admitted it, and said why they
needed to decrypt in real-time:

#                         February 21, 1994

#   To implement lawful interceptions of encrypted communications, they
#   need a real-time or near real-time decryption capability in order
#   to keep up with the traffic and prevent potential acts of ***.
#   Since there can be hundreds of calls a day on a tapped line, any
#   solution that imposes a high overhead per call is impractical.

And if uncrackable crypto were in widespread use within the U.S., the
FBI would demand that it be outlawed. For 'public safety and national
security'.
