Another Anti-American Nobel Prize

From Expat Yank:

Playwright Harold Pinter, ... who has been an outspoken critic of the U.S.-led war in Iraq, was the surprise winner of the Nobel literature prize on Thursday.

... An active human rights campaigner, Pinter has likened U.S. President George W. Bush's administration to the Nazis and called Prime Minister Tony Blair a "mass murderer" for invading Iraq.

... "Iraq is just a symbol of the attitude of the Western democracies to the rest of the world and how they choose to exert their own power," he said.
Both the Peace Prize and the Literature Prize are being awarded to anti-American individuals. Do you want to guess the political leanings of the Nobel committees?
