Yes, he can !
That would be the only honorable way in that situation.
In any case, I would be him, that's what I'd do.
Don't you think so ?

He should accept the prize but state in his acceptance speech that he is doing so on behalf of all of the people who rightly deserved it (and admit that he is unworthy).

Then he can announce that he is donating the cash prize to deserving peaceful causes.

He thinks that he doesn't deserve it (GOOD POINT !) but he accepts it.
WTF ?
That is a strange logic.
Furthermore, doesn't this prize put his hands (the foreign policy of the US) into handcuffs ?

I was watching the Livestream on the ol' Whitehouse website... He did say something along those Lines. Sharing the award is what I think he said. We will have to find a clip of the speech.

And on that note... try to find one with good audio... it seemed a bit static ridden. -*oh wait, I forgot... That's the Aliens coming closer to the Earth... see "Independance Day"

I also think he should not accept... and be proud to be humble.

But we all know, this will aid in moving along the Big Picture for the Greater Good.

Please forgive my slight sarcasm... but I do agree with you OP!

I suspect that there are not many degrees of separation between him, the people who put him in power, and the award committee.

Giving back the prize is not an option for him as it wouldn't fulfill whatever the PR purpose of awarding him the prize in the first place is. It that is the case, then I am simply stating that, in an ideal world, he would score points with me if he admitted his unworthiness and didn't run with the money.
