This Will Be an Interesting Story

So who secured Khaddafi's chemical weapons and Uranium stocks?

The U.S. State Department said Thursday it believes that Libyan stockpiles of mustard agent and uranium are secure, despite continuing turmoil there. U.S. officials are less sure about the status of shoulder-fired anti-aircraft weapons that were in Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's military arsenal.

They say that they know this by "national technical means," which usually means satellites. But I wouldn't call anything secure unless there are friendly boots on the ground. Do we just not want to call attention to that?
