Tom DiLorenzo is on the money in pointing out that giving the Peace Prize to Obama is a little out of character for the Nobel gang. As far as U. S. presidents go, he’s killed far fewer people than Wilson (1919) or than Theodore Roosevelt (1906)—of whom the great historian Charles Beard wrote that he was the only major figure in U. S. history who thought that war was good in itself. But let’s not forget this that gang thought it fitting to award the peace prize to Henry Kissinger (1973), who surely belongs in some Tussaud museum of great killers.
