In 1919, Woodrow Wilson was honored. He broke his campaign pledge to keep "us out of war." He wanted involvement in WW I. In April 1917, he established the Committee on Public Information (CPI or Creel Committee).
Its mission was enlisting public support for war and undermining opposition sentiment. It worked as planned. It turned pacifist Americans into raging German haters. The rest is history.
Wilson's resume also includes the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. For nearly a century, it let bankers wage financial war on humanity.
In 2002, Jimmy Carter won. He got Argentine death squad leaders involved in training Nicaraguan contras. He supported Salvadoran fascists. He helped Khmer Rouge killers. He backed despots like South Korea's Chun Doo Hwan.
He armed Suharto after his East Timor genocide. He began covert operations in Afghanistan. He enlisted mujahedeen fighters against Soviet Russia. He supported neoliberal harshness. In 2002, he won the award he wanted for years.
In 2009, Obama became the fourth US presidential recipient. He's the worst of the lot by far. Nobel Committee members said it was for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."
"Obama's vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons."
He "created a new climate in international politics."
He supports efforts to strengthen "democracy and human rights."
