Regarding the Spokane Bomb that was found.
IF the bomb was placed there by Domestic Jihadist Extremists, how do you think they perceived the MLK parade?
Was the perspective maybe, all those people were just Americans?
Was the perspective maybe, all those people were Christians like MLK?
Was the perspective maybe, all those people were something else other than what the bomber was?
How many different reasons could be given for a Domestic Terror Event at a MLK event, IF the bomber WAS an Islamic Extremist.
Do you think it's possible that they simply saw all those AA people as just more Christian Americans?

I would think that regardless of who the group is, the point of a terroristic threat is to harm as many people at once as possible to cause chaos.
Now, I'm no criminal, but if I were going to do something to hurt others, I wouldn't want my name or affiliation attributed for it. I don't think like a terrorist though. I believe they usually want to claim responsibility (adds to the street cred).
I think it's far more likely that they have details that they aren't giving to the public, so I will wait to see the outcome of the investigation.

She clearly posted on the first page:

Operative word being hypothetical.

I get that, QuinnMae. What I don't understand is why ask such a pointed hypothetical? Why not ask why anyone would plant a bomb where so many people would be gathering to celebrate the life of a peace-loving man like MLK? Why ask specifically those questions regarding Islamic Terrorists when we don't know who planted the bomb? I don't understand why the OP would choose one terrorist group over any other at a MLK parade especially when it makes more sense for this crime to have been committed by a group like the Aryan Nations who have a history in that area. What was the purpose behind this particular and unlikely hypothetical scenario? That's what I'm trying to understand. I don't see the purpose to making up reasons for assigning hypothetical intrigue to a very real situation.
