We think that the former President of the United States is right. From all appearances the CIA-NSA-Military-Industrial Complex has taken a page out of the Vietnam Victory Manual finding it necessary to destroy Democracy in order to “save it”, sort of. The Empire strikes back and when it identifies enemies of the NSA et alia they usually get even.
The former President is also wary of the NSA and its agents. JIMMY CARTER had this to say about NSA monitoring:
“I have felt that my own communications were probably monitored. 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,” Carter said, “because I believe if I sent an email, it will be monitored.”
