Add Jimmy Carter to the list of people who are suspicious of National Security Agency surveillance programs.

The former president told NBC's Meet The Press on Sunday that he uses old-fashioned technology — snail mail — to evade NSA surveillance when he contacts a foreign leader.

"I believe if I send an e-mail, it will be monitored," Carter said.

The nation's 39th president told NBC that "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 have felt that my own communications are probably monitored."
