In answering the brief ‘And the winner is’ I decided to focus and investigate the presidency, of nobel peace prize winner, Barack Obama. Barack Obama won the nobel peace prize just a few weeks into his presidency, and it’s one of most famous controversies of the Nobel Peace prize. This Document is questioning if the nobel peace prize should be given to leaders of military nations, using the world’s biggest military as an example. Barack Obama acknowledges this himself in his speech saying “But perhaps the most profound issue surrounding my receipt of this prize is the fact that I am the Commander-in-Chief of the military of a nation in the midst of two wars”. He acknowledges previous more deserving winners such as Martin Luther King.
