Yassar Arafat, Jimmie Carter And Barack Obama

Barack Obama [1]

Barack Obama

Note the first two, Yassar Arafat and Jimmie Carter, won a Nobel Peace Prize for supposedly bringing peace to the Middle East.  Now Barack Obama, with the same intent, Middle East peace, has won the same prize,  from the Associated Press [2]:

OSLO, Norway – President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize [3] on Friday for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” the Norwegian Nobel Committee said, citing his outreach to the Muslim world and attempts to curb nuclear proliferation.

I extend to Obama the same respect that I do the first two names, Arafat, a terrorist and Carter, naive fool.

Alas the poor Nobel Committee.   At least Arafat and Carter had an agreement on paper.   All Obama has, is his soaring campaign rhetoric.   This is a poor choice even by the standards of Stockh0lm.
