Before Obama took office, he was given the Nobel Peace Prize as a shock to everyone. Many felt as if it diluted the prize with all the influential names that have received it in the past.
If I remember correctly he won over a woman that smuggled Jewish children out of Germany during the war. Put babies in tool boxes etc. to get them out.
She had the children’s names in a jar that was buried in the ground, so after the war, the children could be reunited with their families. Obama got it for doing nothing. Too bad they tarnished their name.
Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama in 2009 failed to achieve what the committee hoped it would, its ex-secretary has said.
Geir Lundestad told the AP news agency that the committee hoped the award would strengthen Mr Obama.
Instead, the decision was met with criticism in the US. Many argued he had not had any impact worthy of the award.
Mr Lundestad, writing in his memoir, Secretary of Peace, said even Mr Obama himself had been surprised.
“No Nobel Peace Prize ever elicited more attention than the 2009 prize to Barack Obama,” Mr Lundestad writes.
“Even many of Obama’s supporters believed that the prize was a mistake,” he says. “In that sense the committee didn’t achieve what it had hoped for”.
Obama hadn’t done a thing to deserve it at the time it was awarded, and I certainly don’t hold the Nobel Peace prize in high regard as I once did.
The Nobel peace prize will be known henceforth as nothing more than a participation trophy. The crazy thing about this is, we already knew it.
