Russia announced that it will build as many as eight nuclear reactors in Iran for "peaceful use of atomic energy," according to Russian state news agency RIA Novosti. As part of the deal, the spent nuclear fuel will be "returned to Russia for reprocessing and storage."

"And that, it seems to me, is something that Mr. Obama could have addressed, and he just ignored it completely."
