■ Jimmy Carter: ‘I feel like I’m being monitored by U.S. gov’t.’

Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter says he avoids emailing world leaders because he thinks the U.S. government of President Barack Obama is “probably” spying on him.

“I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored,” said Carter, a vocal critic of the spying activities of the U.S. National Security Agency, on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on March 23.

“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,” he explained during the interview.
