    Who didn’t see this coming?
    Imagine a suspected terrorist lives next door to you and one night his home is bombed by missiles fired from a drone. your child’s bedroom wall collapses and she is killed.
    Now imagine that is not in Pakistan or Yemen but in Maryland and the suspected anthrax terrorist was in your neighborhood.
    Suspect is now a death sentence and its a ho hum story to the Americans. Sad.
