So Was Tookie Williams

And we all know how that turned out.
U.S. Newswire : Releases : "Bolton, Timmerman Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize...": "United Nations Ambassador John Bolton and longtime Iran investigator Kenneth R. Timmerman were nominated for their repeated warnings and documentation of Iran's secret nuclear buildup and revealing Iran's 'repeated lying' and false reports to the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Bolton was formerly U.S. Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security and was author of the Proliferation Security Initiative, an international effort to interdict shipments of weapons of mass destruction and related materials, which led to the eventual breakup of the secret nuclear network directed by Pakistan nuclear scientist A. Q. Khan. Bolton repeatedly warned of Iran's nuclear plans.

Timmerman, an independent researcher, has written extensively on Iran's nuclear activities for more than 20 years. His report for the Simon Wiesenthal Center in 1992 first detailed Iran's ties to A.Q. Khan. His most recent book, 'Countdown to Crisis: The Coming Nuclear Showdown with Iran,' was published last year."
Bolton is no Princess Diana, nothing he has been associated with will earn him a Nobel. Anyone can be nominated and as Joe Jackson said "there goes your proof". The Nobel committee hasn't drunk the American Kool-Aid.

No worries. No need to get the knickers in a knot.
