Bush administration tried to cut explosive detection funds

In the midst of the furor over the UK airplane terror plot, the Bush administration approved a plan that would have cut $6 million from explosive detection technology funding. Congress ended up rejecting the plan. Was the UK liquid explosive plot really that serious if the Bush administration would cut explosive detection funding as the plot unfolded? Or is this yet another example of BA ignorance concerning the real threats to "homeland security"? Not good either way...
