Does anyone know a way to purchase Savings bonds or Treasury Bonds
Direct from the government and get them into a retirement account.


See: http://www.treasurydirect.gov/

Here you can buy savings bonds as well as place non-competitive bids for T-bills/notes.

In general you can defer taxes on savings bonds(EE/I) for up to 30 years. There are different rules for different series. You wouldn't buy a bond and "get them into" a retirement account per se. Of course, you can use them as part of your retirement savings. In other words, they are already a tax-sheltered investment.

You can learn a lot about all the different types of bonds and there advantages/disadvantages at http://www.savingsbonds.gov/

Best of luck,

Jared
