If memory serves, this isn't the first time that nuclear material's gone missing from Russia. In the collapse of Communisim and the changeover of
the government, a lot of things sort of "fell through the cracks."
This should be a good warning for any state that's in trouble -- there's opportunities for thieves and terrorists when the government (ANY sort of
government) becomes chaotic.
(and no, the chaos in the wake of the fall of Communism is far greater than the confusion in the US government.)
