The tail section was in better condition than the rest of the jet and 4 miles from the body of the jet.

A bomb never and still doesn't make sense to me. A bomb would have destroyed the tail section as well. There was also a mechanical repair on this tail section.
Anything is possible I suppose with upper winds when a jet crashes, but, the physics of this crash never said terrorist to me. This incident occurred at take off no differently than the AA 587. The rudders would be used more to achieve altitude at take off and descend to to land. 

The Air France 447 is unusual because it occurred in flight. The flight record needs to be examined for changes altitude or direction that would place stress on the rudder to bring about it's failure. 

Air Bus had noted the jets years of service. There needs to be a review of these crashes to decide if age of the jets played into the rudder failure. 

People that fly jets have to make up their own minds about these issues, the decision making of authorities is very late to bring correct conclusions.

...Airbus said the A321-200(click here) that crashed was 18 years old, had made almost 21,000 flights and accrued about 56,000 flight hours. It had been operated by the Russian airline since 2012.
Kogalymavia, which owns Metrojet, said there were “no grounds” to blame the incident on human error. Russian state media reported that the crew had complained to officials earlier this week about the state of the plane, claiming it should not be flown due to technical issues.
“This aircraft appealed to the technical service in connection with engine start failure several times over the past week before this,” a source told the RIA agency....
