Nobel Peace Prize

Here are a few honorees:

2005 - Mohammed ElBaradei --- Huh?
2002 - Jimmy Carter --- Again Huh?
2001 - Kofi Annan --- Is there a pattern here?
1994 - Yasser Arafat -- OK Rabin and Peres shared it -- but Huh?
1993 - Nelson Mandela -- No Comment
1998 - The UN Peace Keeping Forces - a bit of self agrandizement?
1947 - the American Friends movement - a noted Pacifist movement -- Right on the heels of WWII???? I guess Neville Chamberline wasn't available

OK there were many excellent choices - Elie Weisel, The Dalai Lama, Doctors without Borders, Mother Teresa - even Teddy Roosevelt (1906)

But Amnesty Internation (1977)

IS it me, but is being basically anti-american and corrupt give one a leg up?
