The French Are Idiots

The French gripe about not getting respect and they are constantly made fun of, but when they do stupid crap like this, it's hard to take them seriously.

France's interior minister called it "scandalous." The Figaro newspaper called it ridiculous. But the bottom line, four days after gendarmes at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle International Airport planted explosives in an unsuspecting passenger's suitcase, was that nobody knew where the explosives had gone.

"We hope the person who finds this will take it to the local authorities," said a spokesman for the gendarmerie, France's national police, who planted the mobile-phone-size lump of plastic explosives as part of an exercise to train bomb-sniffing dogs.

Thanks Barney for the tip.
