Dumb question #2:

*Has* 128-bit AES been examined by more eyes and tested
against
more attacks than 256-bit AES?

It's not the number of eyes that counts, it's the quality of
the brains behind them. AES-256 is specified by NSA in Suite B
encryption for the protection of Top Secret information. There
is very little information that requires a higher level of
protection.

The best place to hide information you don't want discovered is
apparently in the White House email system:
