    • As we all know, President Barack Obama did nothing earthshaking in the 11 days he was in office before the closing date for filing of nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize. Yes, he promised to close the Guantanamo Bay prison and banned torture and extreme interrogation techniques. That was surely not enough to tip the scales in his favour.
      Clearly, for perhaps the first time in the not-so-noble history of the Nobel Peace Prize, the jury has given it in anticipation of what Obama had promised to deliver to the world before he became President rather than what he has done after he entered the White House.
    • The cynical, therefore, cannot be faulted for alleging that this Peace Prize has been rigged.
