Get ’em while they’re hot. The November/December issue of FP hit newsstands today and it’s not to be missed. Nuclear security experts Jeffrey Lewis (who blogs over at ArmsControlWonk) and Peter Zimmerman deliver a fascinating cover story on how a handful of terrorists with a little enriched uranium and a few basic military supplies could easily assemble a nuke in a matter of months.
