Should Obama be stripped of his Nobel Prize?

The Bolivian President and a Russian political leader have launched a campaign to revoke Obama's honour after the US attacked Libya.

Liberal Democratic Party of Russia leader and Vice-Chairman of the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky released a statement today calling for the Nobel Prize Committee to take back the honour bestowed on US President Barack Obama in 2009.

  • I don't think he should have got it in the first place but I don't think it should be stripped.

    Whats done is done. What is happening in Libya is not a reason to take it back.

  • "No one has ever been stripped of a nobel prize, because this is actually specifically forbidden by the organization which administers the Nobel prizes. According to the Nobel Foundation, "no appeals may be made against the decision of a prize-awarding body with regard to the award of a prize," and no prizes can be revoked after the fact, no matter how controversial they may seem. Despite the existence of several petitions pushing for retraction of controversial Nobel Prizes, it is unlikely that the organization will change its rules to make a revocation possible."
