Iran Update: Sanctions Push Continues

The White House says it will continue with an expected push for sanctions against Iran, despite new reports that the regime has temporarily halted uranium enrichment in hopes of a nuclear fuel swap.  The U.S. and its allies have offered Iran a deal that would supply nuclear fuel cells for medical use. In return, Iran would be required to ship its enriched uranium to France and Russia. A senior administration official tells Major Garrett that the proposal remains on the table, but there is no indication Iran will accept the deal. The official says Iran's insistence on a simultaneous swap "does nothing to build confidence in their supposed peaceful intent."
