The other possibility

It's kind of fun to watch the Muslim-bashing right -- see especially Michelle Malkin -- jump all over the case of the Oklahoma suicide bomber because a TV station reported that the bomber -- a 21-year-old Caucasian named Joel Hinrichs -- may have attended a local mosque. At least, he had a roommate who did.

There's no evidence that Hinrichs was a Muslim convert or that he was a member of the mosque, however.

In fact, if memory serves me correctly, the last Oklahoma bomber of any note in fact was a right-wing extremist who at various times expressed deep sympathy for Saddam Hussein.

I wonder why that possibility hasn't crossed their radar.

Well, actually, I don't.
