Nobel Peace Laureate Prepares for War
While President Obama makes plans to escalate Bush's war in Afghanistan to make it his own, he also has to prepare to receive his Nobel Peace Prize. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty Int'l gave Obama mixed reviews on his human rights record a day before he is slated to accept the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo. They urged him use his acceptance speech on Thursday to renew U.S. leadership on human rights after it was undermined by abuses committed during the Bush administration's endless "war" on terrorism.
