Barack Obama did not mean himself that he was worthy to receive the Nobel peace prize in 2009, a few months after his inauguration as president of the UNITED states.
- I accept this award with great humility. My accomplishments are small at the side of some of history's giants that have received this award, said Obama, in his acceptance speech in Oslo.

In the periodical The Political Insider assesses Geir Lundestad, recognized stories, and then director of the Norwegian nobel committee, in retrospect the clear light, that the appointment of the undertones greenhorn was 'a mistake'.
Geir Lundestad considers it controversial choice as the recipient of the peace prize 'not exactly helped to maintain the credibility of a panel, which was once a symbol of the highest expertise'.
the Committee hoped that the award would enhance mr. Obama, explains Geir Lundestad, as with the years have come to the realization that it was not the panel's task is to promote a president's misconduct.
Even many of Obama's supports believe that the price was a mistake, as seen in the light obtained, the committee would not it, the hoped-for, saith his assessment.

the Committee's reasoning for giving the peace prize to Barack Obama was 'his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples'.
the Problem was, believe Geir Lundestad, that the nomination was adopted a few weeks after Obama's inauguration in The White House. At that time he had probably kept memorable speeches, but not showcased specific diplomatic victories.
Evil tongues would know that it was only the relatively young president's popularity in the media, which motivated the Norwegian nobel committee.
It was partly substantiated by the panel's own reasoning:
'Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the whole world's attention and given its people hope for a better future.'

Lived Barack Obama in his two terms of office up to the expectations of the Norwegian nobel committee was to 'boost' by on expected efterbevilling to give the peace prize to the first black president in UNITED states history.
It's that divergent. But in any case it is a fact that Barack Obama allowed that the international jihadist terrorism expanded on his guard in The White House.
He was also unable to prevent, and offensive wars broke out and developed explosively in countries such as Syria and Libya. Both places with the UNITED states in a significant, deadly lead role.
In Obama's time as president until the end of 2016, died also more than 2500 americans in bloody wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

- Yes, absolutely. Obama has taken an important step to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, he said in the Berlingske Journal record in may 2016.
Thorbjørn Jagland was the Nobel-president until 2014. He is now more known as the council of Europe's secretary general and has a history as prime minister of Norway.
