I just read on Reuters that WikiLeaks and by definition Julian Assange has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Come on now, isn’t this a bit of a stretch? Why don’t we just go ahead and nominate the show “Family Guy” for teaching kids about bad parenting and discrimination while we are at it?
Sorry but I don’t buy that his intentions were or are pure. There was no reason to disclose thousands of other pages of documents that dealt with national secrets from many countries and exposed private comments made by diplomats – that was just about hype and drawing attention to himself in my view. This is the same guy facing extradition from Britain to Sweden for questioning about a sex case there. Granted that some think that is just a smear campaign, but if it is then why doesn’t he clear it up?
Someone should go have a discussion with the Norwegian Nobel Committee since they have made quite a few questionable nominations over the past several years.
