Inhofe: ‘Change The Nobel Committee Believes In’

Sen. James Inhofe (R., Okla.), a senior member of the Armed Services committee and a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, tells NRO that he wishes that President Obama had declined the Nobel Peace Prize. “This just reemphasizes how this president has moved the United States from a foreign policy of strong national defense to one based on multinational cooperation,” says Inhofe. “That is the kind of change that the Nobel committee believes in.”

“I fear that this could change the president’s view towards Afghanistan,” adds Inhofe. “General McChrystal has a strategy to win. We need 40,000 more troops. If getting the Nobel Peace Prize somehow influences our policy Afghan policy, I’ll be disappointed.”
