Does 'strengthening diplomacy' warrant Nobel? Americans split -

Does 'strengthening diplomacy' warrant Nobel? Americans split - "'So can anyone tell me how this man won the Nobel Peace Prize?' iRepoter Katy Brown wondered, asking whether it had more to do with him becoming the first black U.S. president. 'The people who have won the Nobel Peace Prize in the past ­-- I'm sorry but the legitimacy of this award has gone down the drain.'

Twenty other Americans have won Nobel peace prizes. Among them, President Theodore Roosevelt won the Nobel Prize in 1906 for negotiating a peace settlement in the Russo-Japanese War, and President Wilson for the creation of and advocacy for the League of Nations.

While the committee's decision to honor Henry Kissinger in 1973 was widely criticized by some, his peace prize was awarded for helping to end the Vietnam War."
