Obama is the only Nobel peace prize recipient to bomb another Nobel peace prize recipient. In 2015, US/NATO planes bombed a hospital operated by Doctors Without Borders in Afghanistan. Doctors Without Borders won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999. President Obama was awarded his in 2009. As Commander-in-Chief of the military that bombed the Doctors Without Borders hospital, this makes Obama perhaps the first Nobel Peace Prize winner to bomb another Nobel Peace Prize winner.
The Nobel Committee declined to award the Nobel Peace Prize in 1948 because “there was no suitable living candidate.” This was meant as tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, who was assassinated earlier that year without receiving the Prize.
The Nobel Peace Prize is named after the guy who invented dynamite.
When Martin Luther King Jr. won the Nobel Peace Prize Atlanta threw him a celebration party that almost had to be cancelled due to opposition. Coca-Cola’s CEO threatened to take the company out of Atlanta out of embarrassment that the city’s people wouldn’t honor their Nobel Prize winner.
