No, he is saying that they are "of military origin", he made no mention of grade, you extrapilated that on your own.
Christophe Chaboud, the head of the French Anti-Terrorism Co-ordination Unit, said the explosives could have come from the Balkans or may have been sourced from a military establishment by someone on the inside.
"The explosives appear to be of military origin, which is very worrying."
If these type of explosives (and they made no mention of specifics) are as available as you espouse they why is an inteligence leader "worried"?
I have no doubt that they can be obtained, but just like you said you have know the right people.
The question is who are the right people?
