Obama accepts Nobel Peace Prize with nod to criticism
Made popular 1755 days ago in
The president acknowledges the irony of winning while the nation is at war. he calls his own accomplishments slight in comparison to those of past winners.
Reporting from Oslo, Norway - President Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize here today, acknowledging the irony of winning it as a wartime president and calling his own accomplishments "slight" in comparison to past winners.
But in his speech to the Nobel Committee, Obama spoke of the concept of a "just war" and the pursuit of a "just peace," which he said sometimes depends on more than simply refraining from violence.
Lauding the commitment of past Nobel laureates to nonviolence, Obama said that - as a head of state and commander-in-chief of a military at war, sworn to protect and defend his nation - he cannot follow their examples alone.
