The Nobel Peace Prize Organization wants Obama’s Prize Back!

Joe:  Just kidding!

Here is why Obama was officially awarded the prize, follow the link to the site to see the original statement on the Nobel.org website.

This is the book summary for the book on the left here, by Fredrik S. Heffermeh, The Nobel Peace Prize: What Nobel Really Wanted:  When Barack Obama in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech endorsed preemptive invasion and declared that American military action underwrites global peace, many around the world wondered why the commander-in-chief of a military superpower engaged in two foreign wars should have been considered for the peace prize in the first place.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama's vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.

Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama's initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.

Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population.

For 108 years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has sought to stimulate precisely that international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world's leading spokesman. The Committee endorses Obama's appeal that "Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges."

Okay so let’s break this down;
Obama expanded War in Afghanistan with triple troop strength
Obama brings the hurt on Libya
Obama doesn’t close GITMO – a really big deal that Bush we routinely criticized for
Obama’s Military Budget – on the whole looking untouched
Obama's record on "strengthining human rights" not in China, North Korea, Iran.

This is not Jimmy Carter – this is much more Bush doctrine! -B
