Americans for Democratic Action Congratulates President Obama for Winning the Nobel Peace Prize

WASHINGTON - Americans for Democratic Action praised the awarding of
the Nobel Peace Prize to President Barack Obama today.

ADA Director Michael J. Wilson said: “President Obama’s
efforts to reduce the threat of nuclear weapons and multilateral approach to
global diplomacy are laudable efforts that have been rightly recognized by the
Nobel Committee.

“This distinguished award honors President Obama’s efforts
to transform the world’s perception of the United States.  It recognizes an end to the antagonism
and intimidation that characterized our foreign policy in recent years and
makes clear the United
States is once again a respected
international leader.

“ADA
congratulates President Obama.  We
urge him to continue seeking peaceful solutions to conflicts in Afghanistan and the Middle
East.  We look forward
to working with the President in the years to come to ease global tension and
encourage peaceful efforts to achieve our common goals."
