truecrupt has a "cascade" option when your creating a VOL, which is encrypt with 3 algorithms and SHA512.

A backdoor does not have to be some injected clandestine code. It can be in the mathematical architecture used, a fundamental weakness or predictive relationship that no one has figured out as yet, but someone knows what it is.
I would stay away from cascade. The more complex a security system the more vulnerable it can be. I would also go with an algorithm that is not widely used. The one that is most used will be the one most targeted. I would be dumbfounded if the CIA and the NSA could not crack AES. IMHO it is theoretically possible with a system that is already in place. I wont give any details but I would steer clear of it. However, I am not worried about the CIA or the NSA for that matter there's not really anything they would want with me, and I do not make a habit of visiting Islamic websites. If you know what I mean.
