Why not? The prize ceased to mean anything a long time ago. If you can award it to that old monster Henry A. Kissinger you can award it to anyone, and they have: Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres, Yasser Arafat, Menachem Begin, Betty Williams, Mairead Corrigan and, of course that awful old fraud, Mother Teresa - to name a few. It could have been worse, they could have awarded it to some dreadful old neocon for ‘efforts to bring democracy to Iraq’. Ha!
