Default Question about AES

Took a few days ponder this question, well I know that there are more specific forums to ask this question in any of cryptography perhaps, but as this forum is dedicated to the security indirectly, i decided to ask a few questions here, and are the following:

Well the NSA recommends using AES to encrypt documents "top secret" already which is supposed to be a safe time algorithm. Do not understand it, as it is possible that recommend a cipher that themselves in theory cannot break? That is to say what would happen if someone with bad intentions, such as for example a terrorist encrypt data with this algorithm, as they would defend themselves before such a thing?

From my point of view does not make logical sense, that a security agency recommend something that they themselves cannot break or control.

They think?
