Barack Obama is the man of peace
US President Barack Obama was honored with the prestigious award, the Nobel Peace Prize, in Oslo, Norway, on December 10, 2009.
The award was handed to Mr. President amidst the reports the honor was premature (Obama had promised to withdraw US soldiers from Afghanistan in mid-2011) but Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee defended Obama’s prize by saying the award showed global support for the initiative, besides, “history can tell us a great deal about lost opportunities,” he added.
In his acceptance statement Obama said he was honored to receive the prize and “unambiguous” about his decision and the deadline.
“To the Nobel Commitee, I am deeply honoured to receive this esteemed prize, and grateful for the extraordinary work that the committee has done over the years to promote a global peace, liberate the oppressed and give voice to the voiceless. Barack Obama.”
Congratulations, Mr. President!
