You are actually quite wrong.
After she was arrested, the DA never pressed charges. Why? Because
there wasn't enough evidence to convict her.
Of course when she later sued, the Oakland PD and DA's office had
conviently "lost" all of the evidence they might have had. The FBI
didn't have any real evidence either. There is a good description of
the bomb taken from the FBI forensic evidence in David Harris's book
"The Last Stand". If you read that it will be pretty clear that the
bomb was made to blow up a moving vehicle, most probably the vehicle
which was blown up "accidentally".
Granted no evidence has ever surfaced to prove that timber industry
lackies or Wise User's did plant the bomb. Many chalk that up to the
outright refusal of the the FBI to investigate any other possibility
than their theory that Bari was transporting her own bomb.
