Hey everybody, the French Gendarmerie Départementale isn't the only law enforcement agency with a habit of leaving explosives laying around airports after training exercises. Looks like it's the LAPD that now has some 'splaining to do, not only on the issue of how explosives were left behind in the first damn place, but also on the embarrassing failure of the K-9 unit that subsequently investigated the package to hit on said explosives.

To make matters worse, after the dog failed to signal his handler opened the package in the middle of a crowded airport concourse, a move which could have been catastrophic if the "bomb" was anything other that a training device.

Doesn't give me much confidence in the LAPD's ability to protect the airport, which, as past events have shown, is certainly on the short list of sites that terrorists would love to hit.
