I was framed I tell ya

Atomic Mushroom

Schneier reports that MSNBC reports:


Somewhere in the world, there’s a navy blue suitcase with a small pack of explosives tucked in its side pocket.

.......

Four days after police at Charles de Gaulle Airport slipped some plastic explosives into a random passenger’s bag as part of an exercise for sniffer dogs, it is still missing -- and authorities are stumped and embarrassed.


Planting explosives in unsuspecting passengers bags for testing is NOT cool.

While this may sound comical just imagine trying to explain to authorities in fun human rights loving countries (like, let's say Saudi Arabia) that you have nothing to do with the explosives found in your luggage when you arrive and your luggage is searched...... Can you say "Cruel and unusual punishment" ?

Addition:

Check out the BBC for another story of explosive planting fuckups. At least this time they didn't use innocent unsuspecting passengers.
