For someone who used to run the federal government, Jimmy Carter sure is skeptical of it.

The former president told NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell on Sunday that he thinks his communication is monitored by the National Security Agency. The 89-year-old added that when he wants to get a message across to a foreign leader he does it through old-fashioned snail mail.

Is he being smart, or is he being paranoid?

He's smart to be paranoid when it comes to the behavior of the US spook agencies.

Well if he was talking about easily hacked private messages; I think its not just government but media as we have seen. Anyone wanting privacy needs to consider this.

President Carter didn't actually used to run the federal government - he was only responsible for the executive branch.

But it is MSNBC - what can you expect?
