FBI: Spokane Bomb ‘Sophisticated’

A bomb left along the route of a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade was sophisticated, with a remote detonator and the ability to cause many casualties, an official familiar with the case said Wednesday. The bomb, which was defused without incident on Monday, was the most potentially destructive he had ever seen, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to release information about the investigation. "They haven't seen anything like this in this country," the official said. "This was the worst device, and most intentional device, I've ever seen"/Nicholas K. Geranios, AP. More here.

Question: Is it right to guess about the individual or ideology behind the placement of the potentially lethal bomb in the backpack along the Martin Luther King parade route?
