A parting shot

Clemens Heni and I, in this piece, disagree with the conventional wisdom that says that President Obama did nothing to deserve the Nobel Prize. Instead, we identify several of his policies that may have earned the approbation of the Norwegian Nobel Prize committee:

"courting the Muslim world in general and the Saudi king in particular; displaying hostility to Israel, to the point that [Obama's] public support there has plummeted from 70% to 5%; negotiating with Iran regardless of Iran’s human rights violations or its documented progress in developing nuclear weapons and their ballistic missile delivery systems; dithering about the war in Afghanistan; and crushing Hondurans who don’t want a president for life."

And there's more - so read it!
