The most surprising fact is that three dictators ( all warmongers and killers) were even considered for the Nobel Peace prize. To err is very human.

Evelyn Fritsch, Michael Fangerow, It’s amazing how many awardees of the “Nobel Peace Prize” turned out to be mass murderers or eventually responsible for the murderous death of thousands.

Obama and gore took away the credibility of the Nobel prize. Means nothing now.

Everyone has a right to his or her own opinion, but hardly would I ever put President Obama in the same company with those known criminals! Certainly, Iwould never put his name in the same sentence or context with such immoral low life’s! Just sayin ...
