What we should learn is that terroism is with us. It has happened more than once and we must learn that it will happen again. Our government cannot protect us. Our Homeland Security led by Janet Napolitano is a joke. The 2 terrorists from Boston were not born in this country, they did not share the same values obviously, and we know they were brainwashed by a radical faction in their religion. Based on public reports from the FBI, the oldest brother was on a suspect list and questioned in the past, but was somehow overlooked or dropped from the list recently. And now the younger brother will be tried and defended in a court of law (and watched closely and protected by ACLU attorneys.) I doubt he will get the death penalty in this current political climate.
