Ann Bartow points to this very odd and worrying incident: VA Nurse Investigated for ‘Sedition’ for Criticizing Bush:
Laura Berg is a clinical nurse specialist at the VA Medical Center in Albuquerque, where she has worked for 15 years.
Shortly after Katrina, she wrote a letter to the editor of the weekly paper the Alibi criticizing the Bush Administration.
After the paper published the letter in its September 15-21 issue, VA administrators seized her computer, alleged that she had written the letter on that computer, and accused her of “sedition.”
That’s right: writing a letter to the editor accusing the administration of “criminal negligence” gets you investigated for sedition in today’s USA.
