Nobel Peace Prize Jury Under Investigation



They’re just now questioning the “peace” cred of some of the past recipients?

The nomination deadline for the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize has expired amid renewed criticism the award committee has drifted away from the selection criteria established by the prize’s founder.

Stockholm’s County Administrative Board, which supervises foundations and trusts in the city, is investigating claims the Nobel Foundation has widenened the scope of the prize to a point where it no longer reflects Alfred Nobel’s will.

Unless Alfred Nobel’s will was to give his Peace Prize to a terrorist, an appeasing failure of an ex US president who emboldens thugs around the world, a enviro scam artist and a president who had done nothing up to that point except read speeches from a teleprompter and has since turned into a killing machine, they might want to re-visit the criteria.
