Ex-US President Carter uses snail mail to avoid NSA monitoring — RT USA

Former American president is aware his emails could be monitored by US intelligence agencies excessively “liberalized” under President Obama so he prefers to send letters via ‘snail mail’ to ensure the privacy of correspondence.

In an interview with the NBC TV channel dedicated to the publication of his new book, ‘A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power’, 89-year-old Jimmy Carter said he does not trust electronic communications because they could be monitored.

“You know, I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored,” Carter told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “When I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write a letter myself, put it in the post office and mail it,” continued Carter.
