At least?

SecDef Gates has asked for an outside inquiry into the 'loose nukes' episode. Earlier, we learned that the Air Force report was delayed for 'several weeks'. Since everyone is very tight lipped about this whole affair, it's hard to know if the one is linked to the other.

The whole affair is very murky, and will no doubt remain so. And murkiness makes it all the more intriguing to point out tidbits like this in the AFP's article, which is similar to the AP article linked to above, with this addition:
Defense officials have said that at least six nuclear armed cruise missiles were mistakenly flown from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota to Barksdale Air Force Base on August 30 under the wings of a B-52 bombers.
At least? Oy.
