Obama, your defense should not be in keeping the Nobel Peace Prize, you should be explaininghow the hell you ever received it in the first place.
As Obama’s war continues in Libya, Barack Obama told reporters today that he’s keeping his peace prize. Of course he is, it’s not like he is now in more military conflicts than GWB. Oh wait, he is. As reported at The Politico, Obama defended his Nobel Peace Prize stating there is no contradiction because he is saving Libyan’s from being butchered by Qaddafi. So Barack, what’s the difference from what GWB did in saving Iraqis from Saddam Hussein?
President Obama defended his Nobel Peace Prize on Tuesday,saying that Americans “don’t see any contradiction” in him ordering an attack on Libya to make sure “people aren’t butchered because of a dictator who wants to cling to power.”
“When I received that award, I specifically said there was an irony because I was already dealing with two wars,” Obama said in an interview with CNN from El Salvador. “So I am accustomed to this contradiction of being both a commander-in-chief but also someone who aspires to peace.”
Isn’t it amazing what Obama now says as President as compared to when he was a Democrat Senator.
Saying he is focused on ensuring that Libyans can “live out their own aspirations,” Obama defended America’s involvement in Libya, saying, “we’re not invading a country, we’re not acting alone – we’re acting under a mandate issued by the United Nations Security Council in an unprecedented fashion and with unprecedented speed.”
