It is said that WikiLeak’s (Chelsea Manning’s) leaked Iraq and Afghanistan War Logs and Diplomatic Cables have embarrassed President Obama who has the unpleasant task to end wars which he has not begun. But the Nobel Peace Prize laureate of 2009 has escalated another war in recent years which carries his signature now and forever, and which Noam Chomsky has named a global assassination campaign. It is nothing but terrorism, as Robert Greenwald in his movie “Unmanned – America’s Drone Wars” probably rightly suggests. President Obama’s kill list and his “next generation kill list”, the Disposition Matrix (an indeed Orwellian term) is just another embarrassment for the President of Words.
Voices calling for revoking the Peace Prize have been ignored in Oslo’s Nobel Prize Committee so far. “According to the statutes of the Nobel Foundation, § 10, it cannot be revoked.”
