Pakistan: what about those nukes

In all the bin Laden post-mortems, all the talk about Pakistan’s ISI (or some of it) hiding the al Qaeda leader in plain sight, I still have read nothing (unless I’ve missed it) of Pakistan’s nukes. This is a nuclear power, people, one – we have been reassured – is ultimately an ally.

Oh, really? I guess Hillary thinks so. According to Reuters
this morning, our Sec’y of State says we’re going to “stand by Pakistan.” Is this an extreme version of “keeping your friends close but your enemies closer”? Or is it suicide?
