NSA Head Fires Back at Jimmy Carter for Claiming the NSA’s Monitoring Him

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed in a recent interview that the NSA is monitoring his communications, which is why he sends really important messages via the old-fashioned postal system. But NSA head General Keith Alexander believes Carter is exaggerating, and said as much in a new interview with Fox News.

Bret Baier brought up Carter’s criticism that the NSA is monitoring his e-mails. Alexander responded, “We’re not, so he can now go back to writing e-mails.”

He assured that if the NSA ever did that, they “would be held accountable and responsible,” assuring that there has been plenty of review and oversight of the NSA that has concluded no abuse, except for twelve instances that the NSA disclosed.

Alexander charged that critics “say what could happen and immediately jump to, ‘Well, that is happening.'”
