Will Obama Lose His Nobel Peace Prize?

Think President Obama’s 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was a mistake?

Well, Stefan Svallfors, a Swedish sociology professor from Umeå University, certainly does. In fact, he has a better candidate for the prize: NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Well, Stefan Svallfors, a Swedish sociology professor from Umeå University, certainly does. In fact, he has a better candidate for the prize: NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

In a letter recently sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Svallfors wrote that Snowden has: “revealed the existence and extent of the surveillance the U.S. government devotes to electronic communications worldwide … Edward Snowden has helped to make the world a little bit better and safer.”

Can I get an “Amen”?

To top it off, Svallfors added that giving Snowden the Nobel Peace Prize would help remove the shame of the “hasty and ill-conceived decision to award U.S. President Barack Obama the 2009 award.”
There’s also an online petition [http://act.rootsaction.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=7647] demanding the Nobel Committee revoke Obama’s prize, and
the president of Bolivia even demanded that he give it back [http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/red-eye/transcript/gutfeld-bolivian-president-demands-obama-return-nobel-peace-prize].
