Bill Clinton and Bradley Manning nominated for Nobel Peace Prize
A total of 231 nominees are up for the Nobel Peace Prize this year, the Nobel Institute said on Monday, with Bill Clinton, Helmut Kohl, the EU and US soldier and WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning known to be on the list.
10:36AM GMT 27 Feb 2012
"As always, there are the usual 'nominees' and some newcomers, some famous and some unknowns, hailing from the four corners of the world," the head of the Nobel Institute, Geir Lundestad, told AFP.
With 188 individuals and 43 organisations, the number of candidates comes close to last year's record of 241, when the award went to Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Liberian activist Leymah Gbowee, and Yemeni "Arab Spring" activist Tawakkol Karman.
Thousands of people are eligible to submit nominations, including members of parliaments and governments worldwide, university professors, past laureates and members of several international institutes, who had until February 1 to propose candidates.
The Nobel Institute keeps the names of nominees secret for 50 years, but those who are entitled to nominate are allowed to reveal the name of the person or organisation they have proposed.
Among the people known to have been nominated for this year's prize are former US president Bill Clinton, ex-German chancellor Helmut Kohl who led his country's reunification process, and Ukraine's ex-premier and now jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko.

That would make a joke of the Nobel Peace Prize.
This ‘prize’ has become nothing but a political soapbox for liberal Europeans who hate the US.
Considering they gave one to Obama for what he “may” do, it’s already a joke.
It already is a joke....can you name, Obama and Gore.
“That would make a joke of the Nobel Peace Prize.”
NPP jumped the shark when awarding to Obama.
The Peas prize is already a joke......
They jumped the shark with the Jimmy Carter award for ‘brokering the non-nuclear proliferation treaty with N Korea’. A few weeks later N Korea announced they were nuclear. THAT is when I realized it was nothing but political.
That would be ‘nuclear non-proliferation’. Too early.
That would make a joke of the Nobel Peace Prize.
Why isn’t Ahmadinejhad on the list-—or maybe he is.
whatsamatta....they couldn’t nominate George Soros?
Don’t forget Arafat!
The “nobel prize” people screwed themselves, by turning the “nobel prize” into nothing but a leftist talking point.
Seriously, it’s like gay hollyweird liberals awarding other gay hollyweird liberals, prizes for being gay hollyweird liberals.
Nothing could mean less,
That already happened when they gave it to 0bama. Not to mention previous winner Gore..
Wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Manning won. Its clear that the NPP is now about making Leftwing political statements rather than contributing to genuine “peace”.
If they win the Nobel Peace Prize, it becomes a joke.
Next up, Hitler, Stalin and Mao.
Now that Osama Bin Laden is no longer available...
Maybe he'll get sooooo crazy he'll finally slip and out Butch. Oops, I mean Hillary.
(wonder if her new GF likes that new hairdo?)
The NPP has been a joke for years!
Clinton already has the ignoble piece prize.
Bradley Manning? Why not Eli? Or Peyton? Or even old Archie?
I'm not sure the prize could survive any more of these "punch lines".
The Nobel Peace Prize couldn’t be any more of a joke.
For years now, I have thought the Nobel Prize a joke.............
Makes sense to me. If your world view is that US global dominance is the greatest threat to world peace, then those individuals who are the most destructive to US dominance should be considered for the peace prize. See Manning, 0bama, Clinton, Gore, etc...
The Nobel Peace Prize is already a joke. hey should give it to Bradley Manning
... Carter, and Yasir Arafat.
If these folks were around in 1938, they would have given Hitler the Nobel Peace Prize.
Obama won one, for his campaign rhetoric I guess cause he was only in office 5 minutes when he got it. So it's already a joke.
They should retroactively give one to Benedict Arnold, that would be fitting with their current standards.

The problem is the rest of the noble prizes are awarded by scientists while the Peace prize is awarded by a bunch of snooty Euroweenie politicians.
If I was ever awarded the Nobel "peace" prize, I'd show up for the awards ceremony and wait patiently until my name was called, then denounce the committee in front the cameras, state that I won't accept this award, and explain why it's become a meaningless joke. (Hell, I'd end the speech with "You should hang your head in shame for those past recipients! Alfred Nobel is spinning in his grave!") That might force the MSM to cover the truth.
That was as much of a sham as Kim Jong Il golfing perfect rounds or Saddam Hussein winning elections with 100% of the vote.
Every sodomite on the planet is supporting this disgusting little traitor. Private rimmer should get comfortable with a scratchy rope if justice is his deserved portion but, the queer brigade has funded his legal defense with at least 500K. Ask yourself what the obsession of every queer is—answer: his queerdom, nothing else matters, not even treason.
