Smuggling nuke into U.S. remains challenging — for now

“A Hezbollah operative who bribed a nuclear power plant employee in Argentina to steal plutonium conspires with a rogue Mexican cartel jefe to smuggle the materials into the U.S. to be used to blow up MacDill Air Force Base. Steven Sin’s nightmare scenario is a spy thriller come true — a jihadi getting ahold of nuclear material and then being able to smuggle it into the United States to be used as a weapon. The bad news, says Sin, is that al-Qaida, Hezbollah and groups like it really, really want to make that happen.”
