The official list of 2014 Nobel Peace Prize nominees is secret. However, some of the names have leaked out. Here is a list of those leaked names.
Some surprises. Some you'd expect. The Nobel Peace Prize has become a joke for it's obvious politics and lousy choices, but you never know ... maybe
they'll get it right this time and pick Malala Yousafzai or Pope Francis ... but I wouldn't count on it.
I put this in 'conspiracies' instead of current events because I do think the nominations are political based and there is a conspiracy behind the
scenes. But if the mods feel this is more of a current event forum thing and they move it, I can understand that.
Global Post - Nobel
Peace Prize Nominees include Malala, Pope Francis, Putin
Reuters - Putin Among Nobel Peace Prize Nominees
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been nominated for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize - but the conflict in Ukraine is also likely to be on the Nobel
A record 278 candidates, including 47 organizations, received nominations for the 2014 prize, said the Norwegian Nobel Institute's director, Geir
Committee members who met on Tuesday added their own proposals with a focus on recent turmoil around the globe
I can see him being nominated for what he did with Syria .. pulling us back from the brink of a world war. But the guy is KGB .. he's not a good guy
in his own country (ask the homosexuals) and he's invading the Ukraine.
Also nominated (among others) - Pope Francis (I agree with), Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai (I agree with), Edward Snowden (I disagree with),
Chelsey Manning (I disagree with), Uruguay President Jose Mujica, International Space Station Partnership.
Most nominees are unknown to the public.
However, there is a short list of those confirmed to have been nominated.

Well, Obama got it for doing nothing more than repeating pretty speeches that were written by others. And Arafat got it even though he was a
terrorist and continued to be all the while he was robbing the Palestinian people of millions in aid money. I suppose the president of Uruguay could
get it because he legalized marijuana. (While I agree with doing that, it isn't worthy of a 'peace prize'.)
Any names missing that you'd think they should be considering?
