That's dangerously outdated and/or naïve.  Yes, NIST got played by the NSA for dual-EC; by law, NSA was the crypto advisor to NIST so they had to take their recommendations quite seriously.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant. NIST runs global crypto contests these days, and we get the benefit of way more expertise than just the two people you like.
