NPR's Mike Shuster profiles Mohammed el Baradei, who heads the U.N. agency that keeps nuclear weapons in check around the world. He says the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has high-tech sensors that detect whether a country has nuclear weapons, even if the country doesn't cooperate with inspections. And el Baradei says Iraq is not continuing to develop nuclear weapons.
