This is a shocker! Obama has just won the 2009 Nobel Peace prize.

This just happened. I will include more information when it comes in.
 



The Nobel Committee said he was awarded it for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples".

There were a record 205 nominations for this year's prize.

The laureate - chosen by a five-member committee - wins a gold medal, a diploma and 10m Swedish kronor ($1.4m).

Some more info and to fix a link.


(CNN) -- President Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday.

Less than nine months into his presidency, Barack Obama has been awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

The first African-American to win the White House, Obama was praised by the Norwegian Nobel Committee for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."

"Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future," the committee said. "His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population."

The committee also said Obama has "created a new climate in international politics."

I see nothing about that in the link you provided. If it is true I wonder what for? He hasn't done anything deserving of one.



Edit, is this some kind of a hoax?

This is not a hoax it's not a joke, it's true!



OSLO (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for his calls to reduce the world's stockpile of nuclear weapons and working for world peace.

The first African American to hold the country's highest office, Obama has called for disarmament and worked to restart the stalled Middle East peace process since taking office in January.

The prize worth 10 million Swedish crowns ($1.4 million) will be handed over in Oslo on December 10.

“After Iraq, we may be tempted to turn inward. That would be a mistake. The American moment is not over, but it must be seized anew. We must bring the war to a responsible end and then renew our leadership — military, diplomatic, moral — to confront new threats and capitalize on new opportunities.”


Barack Obama.

How ironic that the leader of the country that is waging 2 wars, has no intention of ending either of them, has fallen short on his promise to close Guantanamo Bay wins the Nobel Peace Prize.

There's a whole lot of oral fixation being satisfied by this.

no hoax btw, nobelpeaceprize.org...

This is such wonderful news for America! What an outstanding way to acknowledge our President! I am so proud of America and her President right now! What a change from just 10 months ago!!

Good for Obama!! Now maybe more Americans will see what the rest of the world thinks of our President.

Maybe if he had actually pulled the troops out of Iraq like he said he would instead of fueling it even more, Sorry IMHO he does not qualify. This is an insult to all who have won it before him. Degrading the Nobel peace prize its self.

~10 years from now~
Person 1 "Yo man, I just won the nobel peace prize for not picking my nose in public."

Person 2 "Didn't they used to be given out for extraordinary contributions to society? So what are you going ot spend the money one?"

Person1 " Not since Obama won it, now the just pull names out of a hat. I think I'll start a collection of items made by child slave labor."

Edit: Because paper clips was all I could think of at that moment.

I wonder what the president will do with the $1.4 million in prize money he gets for winning the peace prize?

This is a shocker! I don't know what to think.

He now has a way to pay off the lawyers blocking all the court cases looking into his birth status/certificate without spending the taxpayer's money to do it.

Or maybe he'll pay off one of his cabinet member's back taxes
