This raises the possibility that if you want to really inject your ideas into the USG hopper, don't write your Congressman, just post using as many sensitive keyword combinations as possible so that you will be red-flagged by the NSA system or some other agency's for actual human attention by an analyst. If you know enough about foreign policy or intelligence to create a
" hook" for a supercomputer, then you probably know enough to write something an intel guy would find interesting too.
