    Comment: Absurd Decision on Obama Makes a Mockery of the Nobel Peace Prize

    The award of this year’s Nobel peace prize to President Obama will be met with widespread incredulity, consternation in many capitals and probably deep embarrassment by the President himself. Rarely has an award had such an obvious political and partisan intent.
