It’s safe to say that we live in one crazy, mixed up world.. The President, completely undermined by single civilian, who is now nominated for his own Nobel Peace Prize..
Edward Snowden is being hailed as the person who “contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order” by exposing U.S. surveillance practices and forcing a new debate over security and privacy, said two Norwegian politicians as they announced their nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize Wednesday.
Snowden, who gave a trove of classified documents to media outlets last summer, could join the ranks of Nobel Peace laureates such as Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, and Mother Teresa, reports AtlantaBlackStar.
If you’re wondering how Nobel nominees are chosen, so were we.
“A nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize may be submitted by any person who meets the nomination criteria,” according to the Nobel website. Those criteria include members of national assemblies and governments, as well as university professors (a Swedish professor nominated Snowden for the award last year, but not until after the deadline, AFP says).
While the two Norwegians say they don’t condone all of Snowden’s actions, they say they’re “convinced that the public debate and changes in policy that have followed in the wake of Snowden’s whistleblowing has contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order.”
