INU - On Tuesday, Fox News reported that the White House had refused to make Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes available to a House Oversight Committee hearing that took place that same day.

INU - In April, the Obama White House announced that the Department of Energy would be spending 8.6 million dollars to buy 32 tons of heavy water from Iran. The substance, a byproduct of nuclear reactions, has research and medical applications but can also be used in the production of enriched plutonium. Under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Iran is required to maintain only very low stockpiles of heavy water and low-enriched uranium, but it has apparently struggled to find a buyer for the heavy water, thereby leading to the US Energy Department stepping in.
