As I mentioned on Twitter, giving Obama the Nobel Peace Prize would be like if the 1907 committee had given the Nobel Prize for Medicine to Mary Mallon. It would be interesting to have some documentary filmmaker speak to the Afghan and Pakistani civilians who have lost family members and get their reactions to Obama’s prize. But I guess it’s better now than after he has “convinced” Congress that Iran has to be invaded in the name of peace and democracy.
Obama gets the peace prize. There really needs to be a stronger word than “cynical” for situations like this.
