Ooops: Slovaks Admit Blame For Explosive Test On Plane

Via WaPo
BRATISLAVA, Slovakia -- Slovak officials on Wednesday blamed "a silly and unprofessional mistake" for a failed airport security test that led to a man unwittingly carrying hidden explosives in his bag aboard a flight to Dublin.

Dublin security chiefs said it was foolish for the Slovaks to hide bomb parts in the luggage of innocent passengers under any circumstances.

Slovak Interior Minister Robert Kalinak expressed "profound regret" to the Irish government for the oversight and the three-day delay in alerting Irish authorities about the Saturday incident.
Apparently they were keeping their sniffer dogs in shape and inadvertently forgot to remove the bomb parts from one suitcase because the police officer was busy.
