    WikiLeaks among nominees for Nobel Peace Prize

    WikiLeaks among nominees for Nobel Peace Prize

    OSLO - Anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks has been nominated for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, the Norwegian politician behind the proposal said on Wednesday, a day after the deadline for nominations expired.

    The Norwegian Nobel Committee accepts nominations for what many consider as the world's top accolade until February 1, although the five panel members have until the end of the month to make their own proposals.

    Norwegian parliamentarian Snorre Valen said WikiLeaks was "one of the most important contributors to freedom of speech and transparency" in the 21st century.
    After watching the 60 Minutes piece on Sun., I'm still on the fence. They claim to do their own vetting of potentially dangerous information that would put people in harms way. No legitimate claims of harm by a leak have come forward, yet.

    A natural and obvious follow up to Prez Bam Bam's hard fought win.

    It was clear when Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize that the nominating group had lost their collective (expletive deleted) minds and this just confirms it.

    What the hell has Wikileaks done for peace?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    The Nobel Prize has become a laughing stock over the years anyway, at least the one they give political types. It's now just a popularity contest.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Noble peace prize is now important as a gold wrap chocolate coin.

    No surprise, here. The NPP has more to do with politics than peace.
