Jimmy Carter / Taylor Hill, FilmMagic

The outgoing director of the National Security Agency says it is not monitoring the e-mails of former President Jimmy Carter (or other officials, for that matter).

"The reality is, we don't do that," Gen. Keith Alexander told Fox News. "And if we did, it would be illegal."

During a weekend interview on NBC's Meet The Press, Carter said he uses snail mail when he wants to contact foreign leaders privately because "I believe if I send an e-mail, it will be monitored."

Not so, Alexander told Fox News.

"So he can now go back to writing e-mails," Alexander said.
