Former President Jimmy Carter said his emails are probably being monitored by American intelligence agencies.
“I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored,” Carter said 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 continued.
Carter also said that the National Security Agency’s electronic surveillance and the United States’s use of drones “has been extremely liberalized, and I think abused, by our own intelligence agencies.”
Until Obama, Jimmy Carter was the guy responsible for the longest period of economic stagnation since the Great Depression. Some of Carter’s other greatest hits include runaway inflation, record unemployment, and the unforgettable energy crisis. And, of course, who can forget 1979’s Iranian hostage crisis which involved the capture and imprisonment of 52 Americans for 444 days.
The last time we heard from ol’ Jimmy was back in December when he called President Obama “incompetent” for his handling of Obamacare’s rollout.
Normally I would say horrible presidents who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. But I would be lying if I said I don’t enjoy Jimmy’s jabs at Obama — blatant or indirect.
