The Nobel Peace Prize Committee members
Committee members | Nobels fredspris
These are the five people who gave the Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama: Thorbjørn Jagland, Kaci Kullmann Five (yes, her name is Five), Sissel Marie Rønbeck, Inger-Marie Ytterhorn, and Ågot Valle. That is Ronbeck on the left. I'm sure they are perfectly nice people. But why is the Nobel Peace Prize considered such a great thing when it is awarded by five unknown Norwegian politicians? Why is it worth more than if I and four friends think Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" video was a greater contribution to world peace than anything Obama did in the last 9 months?
