WikiLeaks Could Win Nobel Peace Prize

The website that has raised numerous controversies is on the ballot for the Nobel Peace Prize. Via Reuters:

Anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks has been nominated for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, the Norwegian politician behind the proposal said on Wednesday, a day after the deadline for nominations expired.

Norwegian parliamentarian Snorre Valen said WikiLeaks was “one of the most important contributors to freedom of speech and transparency” in the 21st century.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee accepts nominations for what many consider as the world’s top accolade until February 1, although the five panel members have until the end of the month to make their own proposals.

    I surely hope they don’t win, I see them causing more problems not less! I’m sure there is a military code for what Manning witnessed to have properly prosecuted without using Wikileaks. Wikileaks should be used as a last resort when a government won’t take action against injustice not a first resort.

      Wouldn’t that be nice, in ad ideal world! Unfortunately, this world is about as corrupt as it could possibly be. Anyone who has access to information that could reveal the hypocrisy and lies which are used to justify all manner of evil in this world need to do everything within their power to make sure that information comes to light. “Just press send…”

    Well, after a fraud like Paul Krugman won the Nobel for Economics, and Messiah Obama won the Nobel for Blackness, the award lost all meaning to me…
