He may only be nine months into his first term, but President Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” said the Nobel committee in a statement.

“His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population,” the statement further read.

The president was chosen over 204 others for the prestigious award and was woken up at dawn by White House press secretary Robert Gibbs who called to give him the news.

“The president was humbled to be selected by the committee,” said a senior White House staff member. (Reuters)

  1. I agree @ mk_ultra – the man hasn’t done anything outstanding for a Nobel Peace Prize. What a joke! I am sure this is the reason he was waiting to announce a decision on the Afghanistan troop issue….wouldn’t want to send more troops over there BEFORE you are announced the winner….

  2. No matter what your political stance is, I totally think this prize is unwarrented. It really detracts from what it supposedly stands for, in my little opinion.
