Taliban raid on naval base raises new questions about Pakistan's military

The ability of only six armed extremists to storm a Pakistani navy base in the city of Karachi and hold out for 16 hours raised new fears Monday about the security of the country’s military installations, including its nuclear weapons sites. It was an ignominious attack for Pakistan's armed forces, coming three weeks after the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
