    Jimmy Carter believes U.S. is spying on him

    http://news.yahoo.com/jimmy-carter-n...164434808.html

    Former President Jimmy Carter believes U.S. intelligence agencies are spying on him — so much so, he eschews email to avoid government spies.

    "You know, I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored," Carter told NBC's Andrea Mitchell in an interview broadcast Sunday. "And 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.

    "I believe if I send an email, it will be monitored," Carter continued.
    STOP THE PRESSES!!!!! I think Jimmy Carter has happened upon the achilles heel of the NSA.

    Just write a letter. Acres of NSA supercomputers can't read a letter mailed in an envelope.

    No but they can intercept the any letter addressed to anyone they have an interest in and read it via either opening it and putting it in a new envelope or shining a bright light through it and deciphering the image.

    If you wish to check if this is happening put some photographic film in your letter and make sure it goes in in a dark room and comes out in one.

    Of course he will be observed for he has high important roles. But why would the NSA watch him? He must report what has done anyway!

    I would assume old Jimmy boy is right, that the government is keeping an eye on him. But nothing like total surveillance. For an ex-president, I would say it ain't no big thing.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Not sure if Jimmy is losin' it or not, but, if you were ever in the military, or worked for Uncle Sam and had a security clearance, they (US Gov't) does retain your record for many, may of years. They probably check up on people every now and then, call me a conspiracy theorist.

    Not really. I served 20 years active duty and another 26 as a Department of the Army Civilian and had an SBI done every 5 years and who knows how many none disclosure forms I have signed. I finally retired from all of this a little over a year ago. It only makes sense that the government would do a little checking now and then, I view this as no big thing. If the government didn't do that, they would be negligent.

    When an ex-Presidenr feels he has to use snail mail for secure communications, the Intelligence Agencies have gone too far. As an ex-leader, numero uno, of our Nation, he should be respected as a trusted confidant and/or ally of the current occupiers of the Office. His privacy should be sacrosanct.

    I don't feel the same way about criminal ex-Presidents i.e. Nixon (Watergate), Bush 1 (Iran/Contra), or Bush 2 (Torture). Even Clinton doesn't fare well because of Iran/Contra and the Mena, Arkansas connection.

    If course the odds of it being delivered in a timely manner are not good.

    He needs a couple of lessons on steganography.

    Even spell check is behind the times.
