The New York Times Wins The Waterglass’ Understatement of the Year Award

The headline from NYTimes is the understatement of the year:

Accepting Peace Prize Will Be a Test for Obama

Yup.  A big test in saying, “Hello, I’m a war time president who — via remote control — sometimes inadvertantly kills civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan and just ordered 30,000 more soldiers to kill (bad) people in Afghanistan and by my own admission has not done enough to warrant a Nobel Peace Prize and will now deliver a Nobel Lecture on world peace.”

Best of luck, Mr. President.

UPDATE!  Watch the Nobel Lecture live and see Obama at his most Clintonian!

    I thought he gave a good speech.

    I only caught portions of it (we watched it live on the internet here in Poland). It seemed honest enough by saying he thinks war is justifiable. I need to wwatch the whole thing through to give better comment on it.
