The article discusses the assault of the freedom program of the federal government. It is fast becoming-one of the darkest blots on the nation's history. Never before has the United States Government instituted such a sustained assault upon the freedoms which it was designed to preserve and protect. The most effective technique yet devised for undermining individual liberties in the name of national security has been the use of the "reasonable doubt" standard. That standard, with its long and honorable legal history, has been so tortured in its application to loyalty probes as to bear no resemblance to its original form.
