OBAMA'S PRIZE NAMED FOR THE INVENTOR OF DYNAMITE

Will It Encourage Him To Become More "Transformational" Or Not?


By Danny Schechter

Author of "The Crime Of Our Time"


New York, New York: Does anyone among us remember Le Duc Tho? He was the brilliant Vietnamese negotiator at the Paris Peace talks who played Henry Kissinger for the fool he is. Back in l974, on a reporting trip to Hanoi for a Boston radio station, I had the good fortune to interview him as one of that country's senior leaders and heroes.


At the time, he seemed more interested in finding out from me about the background to the busing crisis in South Boston, than in explaining the reasons that the United States would soon lose the Vietnam war.


A year earlier, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize with Henry Kissinger. The egomaniacal Henry the K of course immediately accepted it. The far more principled Le Duc Tho did not, believing that the victims of massive US bombing, ordered in part by Kissinger, should not be put on an equal status with the aggressor.


He also knew that Alfred Nobel had been an inventor of dynamite, and that his peace efforts followed his invention leaving many places in pieces.
