Traffic interception doesn't require re-routing. Maybe it did in the 90's - and even that is doubtful too - but not today. That's the whole point of traffic interception.
Even today, traceroute will show hops that won't respond. That's normal, and it doesn't mean these hops are NSA's or GCHQ's. Quite the opposite: if they show up in traceroute, then they are definitely not NSA or GCHQ. Which makes using traceroute for detecting packet interception completely useless.
