Nuke plans found in Bangkok: Part II

Recall two recent reports. First, the arrest of the infamous Russian arms dealer Victor Bout in Bangkok on March 6. Second, the report last week that one of the computers belonging to the nuclear smuggling network run by Abdul Qadeer Khan --containing the blueprint for a nuclear bomb --had been found in Bangkok.

Well, a blog post by Spook86 has prompted me to ponder whether the two reports might not be connected. Spook86 blogged:
Sources in the intelligence community tell journalist Douglas Farah that at least 10 copies of the weapons documents found on the Swiss computers may have disappeared. Two of those copies may have been passed to Russian arms merchant Viktor Bout, while the others wound up in the hands of unknown parties. . . .
Might the computer found in Bangkok have been connected with Bout?
