Government security mavens never stop working on new ways to test airport security. And since they are often overly-zealous they sometimes make little mistakes. Fortunately, these ‘security experts’ were in France, but don’t think we don’t have our own Inspector Clouseau’s bumbling around. As reknowned security expert Bruce Schneier pointed out,
"It’s perfectly reasonable to plant an explosive-filled suitcase in an airport in order to test security. It is not okay to plant it in someone’s bag without his knowledge and permission….But if you are going to plant plastic explosives in the suitcase of some innocent passenger, shouldn’t you at least write down which suitcase it was?"
Yeah, you’d think eh?
