Knowing a little about the NSA, I find that hard to believe. It would more likely be, they read the contents and if it contains anything they find valuable, the they apply for warrents to cover their a$$es.
Investigators could program their supercomputers to flag packets of information that met certain criteria, such as a certain IP number, a certain traffic pattern or a certain kind of content. As soon as a packet is flagged, investigators would apply for warrants to assemble the packets and read the messages' contents.
