    Muslim extremist, it seems like the Muslim extremists prefer to be a martyr for their cause and do a suicide attack. They'd rather die than spend the rest of their life in a federal supermax prison. Right wing whackos on the other hand, don't do suicide attacks. Look at McVeigh and Rudolph, they'd rather go to jail and stay in the news by releasing their inane ramblings and manifestos from behind bars.

    Of course, it's pure speculation at this point, but if I had to guess, I'd guess right wing whacko. Plus the fact it was on tax day seems significant - perhaps trying to make a political statement as there are other events on other days where they could've gotten a higher body count if that's what they were really after.
