Mohamed ElBaradei and his International Atomic Energy Agency have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. ElBaradei’s fecklessness in dealing with the Iranian nuclear threat surely was a big point in his favor. But I suspect that his opposition to the removal of the terrorist-sponsoring butcher Saddam Hussein put him over the top. That plus the fact that Carter recently won the award and Arafat is dead.
ElBaradei interpreted the award as a message to “keep doing what you’re doing.” What he’s doing is providing the very faint illusion of a response to Iran’s development of nuclear weapons.
