Politicians nominate Snowden for Nobel Peace Prize

  • Barack Obama is probably not happy about the fact that two politicians in Norway nominated Edward Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize. 

    According to the members of parliament, NSA leaks by Snowden "damaged the security interests of several nations in the short term" but also led to policy changes, which may make the world a better place. 

    "His actions have in effect led to the reintroduction of trust and transparency as a leading principle in global security policies," they said. 

    Meanwhile, a US intelligence chief urged Snowden to not publish the rest of the information and to turn it over instead. The Nobel committee is expected to announce the winner on Oct. 10.
