Taliban Calls Obama Peace Prize ‘Unjust’

Among the critics scratching their heads over President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize? The Taliban.

Spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid tells the AFP, “We condemn the award of the Noble Peace Prize for Obama.”


“We have seen no change in his strategy for peace. He has done nothing for peace in Afghanistan. He has not taken a single step for peace in Afghanistan or to make this country stable.”

“We condemn the institute’s awarding him the peace prize. We condemn this year’s peace prize as unjust.”

Mujahid’s comments came via telephone “from an undisclosed location.”
