The Nobel Hope Prize

It's a bit like awarding the Nobel Prize in Literature to someone who reviews novels, beautifully, but has never written one. Some might even consider that a charitable analogy, considering President Obama's moves to cover or ignore strong evidence of American war crimes or his decisions and indecisions about the war in Afghanistan. There are just and unavoidable wars, but whether or not Afghanistan is one of them does not seem like an argument for the Peace Prize.
