US officer believes Pakistan weapons are secure

The Pentagon's top military officer says he is comfortable that Pakistan's nuclear weapons remain secure, but is gravely concerned about Taliban advances there and in Afghanistan.

He also said Monday the worst-case scenario is that Pakistan's weapons would fall into the hands of terrorists. But he said he does not t think that is going to happen.
