Edward Snowden nominated for Nobel peace prize

Two Norwegian politicians say they have jointly nominated the former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden for the 2014 Nobel peace prize.

The Socialist Left party politicians Baard Vegar Solhjell, a former environment minister, and Snorre Valen said the public debate and policy changes in the wake of Snowden's whistleblowing had "contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order".

If Snowden shows up in Oslo to accept the prize, former peace prize winner Obama would be able to target him with a Hellfire missile.
