President Obama is lucky. It is not everyday that a President’s legislative priority, as Senator, becomes a reality because of a billionaire. But that’s what happened last month when famed investor and philanthropist Warren Buffett pledged $50 million to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to create a global nuclear fuel bank to ostensibly discourage nations from enriching their own uranium. In 2007, as a Senator, Obama introduced legislation that would create an international fuel bank and give the IAEA, an arm of the United Nations, $50 million taxpayer dollars to begin to fund it.

Seems okay. Keeping track of nuclear materials would make the world safer without the use of dictators.
