A reminder of why to worry about Pakistan


According to Secretary of State Clinton, Pakistan's nukes are "widely dispersed in the country — they are not at a central location."  And while this might be a good way to protect against a first strike and maintain a retaliatory force, it also opens the door to losing some weapons to local guerrillas.  The Taliban doesn't need to obtain all the weapons in order to be dangerous.
