Suitcase Armageddon

Suitcase Nukes, hopefully not coming soon to a theater near you.

Given that 21,000 pounds of cocaine and marijuana are smuggled into the country each day, how hard would it be to smuggle a softball-sized lump of HEU on one of the 30,000 trucks, 6,500 rail cars or 50,000 cargo containers that arrive every day?

Oh. Shit. HEU stands for “highly enriched uranium.” That can’t be good in a bomb, can it?
