Fmr. President Jimmy Carter says he Has No Doubt his E-mail Communications are Monitored

Former President Jimmy Carter says he corresponds with foreign leaders the old-fashioned way – through snail mail – because he suspects his communications are watched by intelligence agencies.

“I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored,” Carter said in an interview with Andrea Mitchell that was aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“And when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write the letter myself, put it in the Post Office and mail it, because I believe if I send an email, it will be monitored,” Carter said.

He said the National Security Agency’s electronic surveillance and the United States’ use of drones “has been extremely liberalized, and I think abused, by our own intelligence agencies.”
