Is the F-117 able to carry a nuclear missile?

Although classified as a stealth fighter, it MAY be able to handle a nuclear AG missile. I don't have anything to back it up, although my personal guess is that it cannot. I know that the B-1b Lancer and B-2 Spirit stealth bombers are able to, however.

I've read that the B-1 is no longer on the "nuke duty". So I guess that leaves the B-2 and B-52 as the only "nuke warplanes". I can't find anything fro now on the net that says the F-117 is able to carry nukes, but in one book (I think a Clancy book), I think it was mentioned it is able to carry 2 nukes. Oh well, gotta keep searching the net. Thanks for the reply man!
