Maybe he wasn`t the most popular president but his statement is correct. Since 9/11 civil rights are restricted. And Benjamin said: “Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.” Former President Jimmy Carter chimed in on the NSA surveillance scandal and the plight of whistle blower Edward Snowden. "I think the invasion of human rights and American privacy has gone too far," President Carter told CNN's Suzanne Malveaux. "And I think that the secrecy that has been surrounding this invasion of privacy has been excessive... Bringing it to the public notice has probably been, in the long term, beneficial." Last year, Carter railed against the U.S. government for losing moral ground on a series of human rights issues. "Recent laws have canceled the restraints in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 to allow unprecedented violations of our rights to privacy through warrantless wiretapping and government mining of our electronic communications," he wrote in a New York Times . My question: USA - land of the free?
