Former President Carter fears NSA is spying on him

Former President Carter fears NSA is spying on him

Here's proof none of us can be sure of privacy.

Former President Jimmy Carter thinks the National Security Agency may be monitoring his emails. To counteract that, Carter said on "Meet the Press" that he sends messages to foreign leaders by regular mail instead.

From The Hill:

“As a matter of fact, you know, I have felt that my own communications were probably monitored. 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,” he said “because I believe if I sent an e-mail, it will be monitored.”

 Asked what he thinks of the NSA’s surveillance programs, Carter said they've been “extremely liberalized” and have “abused our own intelligence agencies.”
