Taliban derides Obama's Nobel Prize. I guess the DNC was right.

South Africa's Independent reports that the Taliban were none too pleased with Obama's Nobel award.

The Taliban on Friday condemned the decision to award this year's Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama, saying he had "not taken a single step towards peace in Afghanistan".

"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," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told AFP.

"We condemn the award of the Noble Peace Prize for Obama," he said by telephone from an undisclosed location... "We condemn the institute's awarding him the peace prize. We condemn this year's peace prize as unjust.

I guess the denizens of the DNC's fever swamp were right for once.
