Thorbjørn Jagland, Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, must have been caught on camera doing unnatural things to underage boys if he says Obama has "lived up to the Nobel Peace Prize." Obama is killing people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and Somalia!! He just had an American citizen assassinated without trial or evidence!

But then I suspect that the Peace Prize has been awarded by compromised Norwegians, at least since Kissinger "won" the award...

I agree with most everything you stated. Anwar was a terrorist monster who deserved that hellfire missile more than anyone, he didn't deserve to be called an american citizen. As for the committee, I think they had obama fever or something because the man is completely incompetent, has accomplished nothing, and takes credit for things everyone knows he didn't do.

The Nobel Committee is looking more like a group of standup comics and less like an august group of peace promoters. Looking back at their past picks for Peace Prizes, it becomes clear that a few cogs are missing in the Nobel machine. King Obama was selected to receive the prize based on what he said he *wanted* to do. He was in office only a few months when he was awarded the prize and many people across the globe heard their jaws hit the floor.

These Nobel boobs are the same ones who awarded a Peace Prize to terrorist Yasser Arafat.

Awarding a Peace Prize to someone who speaks of their good intentions is simply childish. Reading this article showed me that ThorbjA rn Jagland and his cohorts are about as clear as mud in their thought and purpose.

This King Obama Peace Prize is the last straw for me. Nobel Peace Prizes aren't worth the paper and metal they are made of. This President is responsible for death, destruction and internal interference in other countries' affairs and yet he holds a Nobel Peace Prize? The prize no longer means diddly squat.

I'm curious to know how you arrived at your strong convictions about Anwar al-Awlaki.

Also, have you heard the phrase "due process" before, and how do you feel about it?

Obuma the Tyrant has launched a secret assassination committee that decides what Americans to murder that day, without legal evidence or due process or any oversight.

If you are concerned about this violation of our Bill of Rights and our civil rights and our constitutional rights, contact your senators and representatives immediately and complain about Obuma the Tyrant and his assassination squad! Maybe he thinks he's some tinpot black african dictator, so he needs to be challenged by everyone in America right now before he takes things to lower levels of dictatorship.

Good posting. The Nobel Peace Prize -- at best -- seems to be an "E for effort" these days. It was good when Mother Theresa won the award, and when the two ladies from Ulster won, and Oscar Arias, Elie Wiesel, Desmond Tutu, and Lech Walesa were good choices, but it seems to be mainly a political statement now. The Dalai Lama is kind of cool, but he only won to spite the Chinese government after Tiannemen Square. Jimmy Carter has done some good things (Camp David and Habitat for Humanity), but his "efforts" in North Korea furthered nuclear proliferation. Carter's award -- as with President Obama -- was an "on your face " to George W. Bush. And don't even get me started on Kofi Annan. The luck of the timing of the award plays a big role too. Henry Kissinger and Le Duc Tho, and Rabin and Arafat, were lucky in the sense that it took a few years to see that there "peace" efforts turned out to be hollow trees.(In addition, why did they share the award with Shimon Peres, unless the Committee was trying to influence domestic Israeli politics by favoring Labor over Likud?) OTOH, someone like Phillip Habib made Herculean efforts in Lebanon and elsewhere but he was unluckly in the timing of current events. Tony Blair probably deserves the prize for his efforts in Northern Ireland, but since he helped to rid the world of Saddam and Osama, I guess that the Committee doesn't find him sufficiently useful for its rhetorical efforts.

You made a helluva lot more good points than I did. Excellent observations.

I'm no big fan of President Obama, but I think that he is right to make our relationship with Pakistan a two-way street, Perhaps we don't want to cut off all support of Pakistan now, but if they are our friend and if the billions that the US taxpayers pay them aren't enough to effectively deal with their Taliban/al-Qaida problem, then we are perfectly happy to contribute some drones as further assistance. Maliki was free to surrender himself to any US federal magistrate at any time if he wanted his day in court.

I came to my convictions about ol anwar by being an avid reader of jihadwatch.org for the past years and I have read articles about him from many different sources around the world. He wasn't a cuddly kitty, he was a recruiter for al queda; brainwashing the young fools who feel so alienated by the culture that bends over backwards to appease them that they wish to perform mass murders in the name of islam. He was with a bomb maker at the time of his death, also he was a part of a terrorist organization so the odds of him having weapons and intent to kill were extremely high. He was a threat to the nation, he openly wished the destruction and killing of american lives. I don't think his life was worth risking american troops lives to have "due process" sorry.

Wouldn't Anwar want to die fighting the "Great Satan" so that he could be sent to his feast with 70 virgins? Didn't the drone grant him his wish? It seems that both sides got what they wanted.

"He was a recruiter for al queda" -- Well, so was Ali Mohamed, a U.S. Army officer and instructor at the JFK Special Warfare School at Fort Bragg. Mohamed was also an FBI informant and CIA asset. The allegation that Awlaki was a "recruiter" for "al Queda" means nothing if you don't first define what "al Queda" is and specifically flesh out its relationship with U.S. and allied intelligence agencies.

"brainwashing the young fools who feel so alienated" -- this is typical behavior for an intelligence operative. FBI informant Emad Salem also brainwashed young fools and "radicalized" them. One could accurately describe it as "entrapment," since the young fools certainly didn't have the know-how or resources to build the bomb that eventually exploded in the World Trade Center in 1993. That bomb was a product of Emad Salem (did I mention that he was an FBI informant?), with the full knowledge of the FBI and the District Attorney of New York.

"He was a threat to the nation" -- the idea that the Executive Branch can decide who is and who isn't a "threat" and mete out punishment with no oversight is a MUCH, MUCH greater threat to this nation. In fact, its akin to taking a dump on the Constitution.

By the way, if "due process" had been followed in the wake of 9/11, the lives of many American troops would have been spared.

Why did the Pentagon invite Anwar al Awlaki to dinner (at a time when the FBI was interviewing him about his contacts with some of the alleged 9/11 hijackers?)

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/10/21/nat...

And why were some of the alleged hijackers training in (and living on!!) U.S. military bases?

From Newsweek: "Alleged Hijackers May Have Trained at U.S. Bases"

I hope Mubarak, Ahmadinejad, and Gaddafi win the Nobel Peace Prize. They deserve it as much, if not more than Obama.

I bet that tsar Putin will also receive his Noble Peace Prize in the near future. He needs it to go along with his Russian "Ludvig Noble Prize" given to him by Russian businessmen, his Chinese "Confucious Peace Prize", as well as his "Sainthood" annointed by a sect of the Russian orthodox church.
