First Barack Obama now Bradley Manning Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize – Has Nobel lost their minds?

No we are not kidding!  First Newly elected Barack Obama who has bombed more countries than any other Prize winner can now share a potential Nobel with Army PFC Manning.

Army Pfc. Bradley Manning has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, the Associated Press reports. Manning is most famous for allegedly leaking troves of classified documents, including State Department cables and Military files, to WikiLeaks. He was arraigned last week in Ft. Meade, Maryland and is being charged with “engineering the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history.”

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks who allegedly received the leaked information from Manning, was nominated last year for the award, though he did not ultimately receive it.

The AP notes that “Being nominated doesn’t say anything about a candidate’s chances. A wide range of submissions come in every year from lawmakers, university professors and others with nomination rights, but the decision rests solely with a five-member panel appointed by Norway’s parliament.”
