Main OP-ED says that both the IAEA and Elbaradei deserved the Nobel Peace prize…..really?
The Nobel Committee proved itself to be, not only detached, but also far removed from the common reality we all share. In its decision to grant both the IAEA and ElBaradei the Nobel Peace prize, it chose to overlook the greatest proliferation of nuclear technology by Pakistan’s A.Q.Kahn, which happened right under the nose of the IAEA and ElBaradei!
Its obvious to me that, gross negligence and failure is a quality that the Nobel Committee deems worthy of consideration. Its no wonder then, that former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari, was overlooked this time around. Only incompetence is rewarded.
