IRS snooping on conservative political organizations and Justice Department intrusion into the communications of The Associated Press make one wonder if similar tactics are used on individuals who speak at public forums, send critical emails or otherwise express their freedom of speech.

As we approach Memorial Day to honor our veterans who have sacrificed so much to defend this nation and our Bill of Rights, which defines the limits of government intrusion into citizens' lives, it is indeed sad and alarming that our government would resort to strategies reminiscent of Stalin's KGB and Hitler's Gestapo. That is clearly not what these brave men and women would have expected of our government.
