The man who took on George Bush and won (the Nobel Peace Prize, that is)

In a dramatic rebuff to President George Bush, the Nobel Peace Prize
has been awarded to the man who dared to tell the Americans that the
main plank of the US argument for waging war on Iraq was based on a lie.

The Nobel committee bestowed the prestigious award for 2005 on Mohamed
ElBaradei, the UN official who rose to prominence by exposing the
lengths that America would go to in its efforts to build a case for war.
