Sloppy security makes headlines as Canadian al-Qaeda killed in Syria

Well here's an odd pairing of related security stories to make the mainstream. News comes out that a nice young man from Calgary died while fighting for Jabat al-Nusra, an al-Qaeda franchise that's been punching above its weight, in an oh-so-Canadian way, in Syria for a couple of years now.

Meanwhile, a couple of hundred miles north, another Alberta youngster is trying to smuggle a bomb onto an airplane. Airport security finds the bomb, confiscates the bomb, and then lets bomb-dude carry on with his trip!

Anything wrong with this picture?
