Are Pakistan's suitcase nukes secure from "militants"?

MSNBC has carried an AP story questioning whether Pakistan’s suitcase nukes are vulnerable, given a recent assault on Pakistani military headquarters by “militants”. The link is here.

The attacks come at a time when foreign policy makers debate whether the Taliban and Al Qeada are a single “enemy” or whether Taliban elements should be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. John McCain addressed this point last night.

It's well to bear in mind Sam Nunn's "Nuclear Threat Initiative" and the film "The Last Best Chance" about accounting for radioactive waste around the world.
