Top 10 Worst Nobel Peace Prize Winners

Human Events finds the leftist-dominated committee in Oslo
has a history of making bad awards…

1. Yasser Arafat (1994): This murderous thug shared the prize with Israeli Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres. 

2. Al Gore and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2007): Their global-warming alarmism is a recipe for global-economic disaster.

3. Jimmy Carter (2002): His post-presidential meddling in the international arena made diplomacy that much harder for his White House successors. 

4. UN and Kofi Annan (2001): Lucky they got the award before the Iraqi oil-for-food scandal broke. 

5. Henry A. Kissinger and Le Duc Tho (who refused to accept the award) (1973): Their Paris peace agreement to end the Vietnam War ended up in shambles and the U.S. suffered a humiliating defeat soon thereafter. 

6. Barack Obama (2009): Gives nice speeches but has done absolutely nothing to deserve the award. 

7. Woodrow Wilson (1919): His great achievement — The League of Nations — proved ineffectual in preventing World War II. 

8. International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (1985): Their stance on nuclear disarmament gave comfort to the Soviet Union. 

9. Amnesty International (1977): This group has been a constant source of anti-American rhetoric.

10. Mikhail Gorbachev: (1990): The greatest peace achievement of the 20th Century — the dissolution of the Soviet Empire — should rightfully be credited to President Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul II.
