World Food Program wins Nobel Peace Prize
"This year's Nobel Peace Prize goes to the United Nations World Food Program. The Norwegian Nobel Committe honored the agency that fights hunger and that has tried to prevent the use of hunger is a weapon of war.

I think what stands out about this program is it's one of the few U. N agencies that has the ability to enter Countries that are extremely difficult to enter places like Syria, North Korea, Yemen, and its goal is literally to save the lives of those who are starving due to poor governance, Armed conflicts, you name it, Okay, so I see the connection to war in peace. But why give them this award during a pandemic? Well, Nobel Peace Prize Committee chair buried Reese Anderson made an interesting connection between the Corona virus pandemic in the World Food programs mission. Here's what she said. The world is in danger off experiencing hunger crisis off inconceivable proportions if the World food programme On other food assistance organizations do not receive the financial support they have requested. So Steve. She's hinting here that financial support for this agency could be in question due to the pandemics impact on the economies of the developed world, and that's a big problem. You know this past summer, you Steve Inskeep interviewed the head of the World Food Programme, David Beasley, and he said the pandemic is having a big impact on world hunger. Here's what he said. Before Cove it I had been given speeches that 2020 was weren't going to be the worst humanitarian crisis years since war, too, because of Covad. We are now looking at an additional 130 million people that will be knocking on the door of starvation and Steve Nobel Committee chair buried. Reese Anderson mentioned the fact that this year the pandemic has exposed a lack of global cooperation. This idea that the world needs to unite to combat the biggest threats to humanity. Here's what she said. Multilateral corporation is absolutely necessary to combat global challenges. And multilateralism seems tohave. Lack of respect these days. Steve, you can hear how she stumbles over her words here. She's obviously trying to put this in the most diplomatic way possible. But it's clear with the rise of populist leaders throughout the world. The Nobel Peace Prize Committee deemed it necessary to send a message that in the end, joining together is sorely needed in a world facing both the enormous threat of a global pandemic, but also global hunger.

Gretchen Whitmer, when I put my hand on the Bible I took the oath of office 22 months ago. I knew this job would be hard. I'll be honest and never could have imagined anything like this. More on this from WWJ Radio. Sandra McNeil, Sandra What was their plan for this kidnapping and how were they caught? Well, basically, what they were trying to do is they found out where the governor's vacation home is a northern Michigan on awake and they staked it out. They were planning to buy explosives. They said, to blow up a bridge near the home so that would distract her police. And then they said they could go in. And take her there some words and they're about capping her. But basically a couple members of this group have been talking about this for months. Apparently, we're kind of concern me. They were also talking about killing police. So they went to the police. They were wearing wires. So while they were having all these clandestine meetings, they were actually reporting back And then also there was an undercover FBI agent in there as well. So basically, the agents set them up. To buy these explosives, and that's when they were arrested last night. What was the motive here centered and they have a particular beef with the governor. Or is this just an anti government thing? You know, they have a lot of these with the governor. This is this is pretty much related to the pandemic and sure you've seen a lot of protest got national coverage. There have been a gun rallies and Second Amendment rallies that they were upset with. A lot of her pandemic closures there mentioned in some of these documents. The closure of jam is for months here. They have been open for a little while. That's a movie theaters just opened last week, and they felt like her. They call her a tyrant in the documents, so they feel like she's gone too far. You know, I heard Governor Wittmer at least partly blame President Trump for all the hate today and she did and you know she's been going after the president on national TV over his handling of the pandemic. At the beginning, she said, he wasn't giving her what she needed to get the job done. And when these groups are protesting the press It weighed in and said, deliberate Michigan in all caps on Twitter, so I think she's accusing him of sort of stoking hatred in her speech today, Sandra McNeal at W.

"Time on the takeaway, weekday afternoons at three on ninety three point nine FM. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. And I'm Steve Inskeep. In Washington DC protests in Washington this week suggests the passion surrounding today's vote on supreme court nominee, Brad Kavanagh. Demonstrators were moving through the capital complex in advance of today's vote in the Senate. This is a vote on whether to cut off debate, and it will show of Cavanaugh has enough votes despite allegations of sexual assault decades ago, the process has been bad. But at the end of the day, you have to make a decision, and I've made that decision and that decision will be what Senator I will be voting. No on judge Cavagnaud, but Republicans are praising an FBI report that they say found no corroboration of accusations by Christine Blasi Ford. Bob, corker of Tennessee said he's not concerned that the FBI did not re interview the main accuser or the accused I think they were interviewed. Plenty I have no issue with that. I know the other side of the house trying to make that an issue. I think the American people feel like they were pretty well interviewed so far as we know Senator support for Cavanaugh has been split right along party lines. But a few senators have yet to announce their votes, including democrat, Joe Manchin of West Virginia. And Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Okay. So much anger from Democrats right now focusing on this FBI report does FBI supplemental background check that was ordered after Cavanaugh was accused of sexual assault. When he was younger. Democrats are saying the FBI was constrained the agency was prevented from doing a real investigation here. And let's talk with former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti who has been on our program before thanks for coming back. You thank you. So how useful was this FBI report? Well, we we can't know for sure. Because obviously the public does not know exactly what was in the report at this point. Right. I think certainly it would have been better. If the FBI report was the result of investigation that both sides agreed was comprehensive and thorough. So that this way whatever the results work could be accepted, but both sides. I mean, Democrats are suggesting that the White House may have been directing the. FBI not to pursue certain leads and dictating this is that possible. Could the FBI have could the FBI there allowed the White House to dictated or or had no choice, but to allow it? Well, they would have had no choice because this is a background check. So one thing that listenership understand is that this is not a criminal investigation in which the FBI is going to be pursuing whatever leads it has. And and you know, essentially, doing whatever it can to make sure that if it finds who committed a violation of criminal law here, the FBI is essentially conducting a background check of an individual who has been nominated for high office at the request of the White House. So they're essentially following leads that the White House is giving to them. And the White House has brought discretion to direct the FBI to follow certainly not follow. Certain leads and really the question here is you know, what what was the scope of the FBI investigation. The president at one point suggested that the FBI was permitted to do whatever it would like. But there's been numerous press reports from various sources suggesting that that was not the case I mean James Comey. The former FBI director did this up Ed days before this investigation. Suggesting like this was a moment. I mean, the FBI was limited in terms of time and scope, but but he said the FBI can do this suggesting it with this independent agency that that would rise up in this moment, if indeed the White House was really dictating a lot of this. How uncomfortable might that have been for people inside the agency? Well, that certainly could have been uncomfortable. I think agents may have been telling themselves. Well, this is you know, we're only we're doing our job in the sense that this is a background check. And we're following whatever leads were being told to follow. But you know, there are certainly may have been some discomfort. And I think that may be the result of a. Or that may have resulted in the leaks that we saw so throughout the course of the investigation, it became apparent from various news sources that certain individuals are not being interviewed that that the the FBI investigation was very limited that they had been instructed not to follow certain leads, and so on at least some of those some of those pieces of information may have appeared to have come from from people within the bureau. So if for example. You know, there were witnesses who were put forward by Christine Blasi for the the first Cavanaugh accuser, the FBI did not talk to them if that is true. And if as you say, the White House was sort of dictating how this happened. What was credible about this report? Well, certainly the FBI I have no doubt that the FBI did their job in interviewing the individuals that they were cask with interviewing and so. You know, we have an idea of some of the people that at the very least who were interviewed by the FBI, for example, miss Ramirez, Mark judge so on and I have no doubt that the FBI did their best to interview those people within the best of their ability. And and frankly that doesn't move the ball forward because for example until this investigation. Mark judge had not been interviewed by by anyone. He had just written had his attorney write a short statement to the committee. So this this does move the ball forward. But it it it is. I think to everyone's detriment that what it doesn't resolve all the questions that we have that everyone wasn't interviewed within the week. I wish which could have happened because the FBI is very considerable resources and and presumably could've 'cause done. So and certainly could've interview judge Cavin on Dr Ford who who were not interviewed. Let me just ask you judge Kavanagh wrote an up in the Wall Street Journal yesterday defending his record. Also defending what he described was his in his own words. I mean, very emotional testimony. What what did you make of that? Well, I I was very unusual for a judicial nominee to write an op-ed. I can't recall it ever occurring in my lifetime. So that's that's the first thing. It's certainly quite a moment. It was I think I think I was pleased that this has become an issue because I think for it to me, it should have been a non partisan issue that both sides should have felt that it was inappropriate for judge to make the sort of partisan comments that he did during the hearing that said he suggested that he was emotional and so on and those were his prepared remarks. I thought that run hollow former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, thanks as always. Thank you. Hey, we now know the recipients of the Nobel peace prize the announcement came this morning from the Nobel Institute in Oslo. Their names are Dr Donema, quite gay and Nadia Murad.

Psoriasis are highly Nelson is covering the story high Araya the morning, Steve these winners will be new names most people listening. I would think who are they? Well, Denny mcquaid gay is a doctor in the Democratic Republic of Congo who is world renowned for his treatment of gang rape victims, especially for healing their trauma, like the trauma that they suffer physically inside. He's known as the world leader on that. In Nadia Murad is a Yazidi woman one of about three thousand yahtzee dis who were captured and turned into sex slaves by ISIS during the war in Iraq or during their war. I should say Iraq and Syria, and she escaped and became a really vocals spokesperson for for the victims of the source of these sorts of crimes on the committee says that they selected these two for making crucial contributions for focusing attention on in fighting war crimes. He's seen as the helper who devoted his life to defending victims. And she has the witness who speaks bravely about the horrific abuses against her. And I was just thinking about that. What a remarkable thing to do not only to escape to to survive that ordeal. But to talk about it afterwards, something that's very difficult for anyone to discuss to talk about it publicly and advocate for people. Absolutely. I mean, she she is one of the few many of them are too afraid to speak and she was last year named as a UN ambassador for her efforts. Basically, the first goodwill ambassador for the dignity of survivors of human trafficking, and how Dr mcquaid rise to global prominence. Well, he's known as Dr miracle again for his just absolute skill in his absolute devotion to these women and victims of of gang rape in war in his country. And he basically the committee says that he's the foremost most unifying symbol, both nationally and internationally of the struggle to in sexual violence in war in armed conflict. When you say in war is this dangerous work to be helping the victims of sexual. Violence in a wartime situation. Yeah. Absolutely. He has faced many death threats. And basically there's one in September two thousand twelve where he gave a speech decrying, the horrors of mass rape in Congo at the UN and then a month later gunmen came into his home and tried to kill him his wife and their two daughters. His guard was the only person that managed to save them. And after the shootout, basically, they played the family play dead. And then he left Congo. Shortly thereafter, and still alive to receive his Nobel prize. Is this the Nobel committee's comment in a sense on the metoo movement around the world? Absolutely. This is something basically the committee said that sexual violence is really important to stop. If there's going to ever be peace in the world, especially in wartime. It's also important to notice this only the seventeenth time that a woman has been awarded the Nobel peace prize..

A little breaking news to tell you about the Nobel peace prize awarded just moments ago to Dennis muka, wedge and Nadia murod for their work on ending sexual violence as a weapon of war. You know, what's interesting about that? Marcia is there was a lot of talk about whether or not Donald Trump would get the Nobel peace prize. Donald Trump singlehandedly got the rocket man to stop shooting rockets, and the Nobel committee won't tell people who the nominees are an almost anybody can be nominated. I mean, it's it's literally. To the point at which if someone were to put our names in we could be nominated for Nobel prize and the nominations don't mean that much, but what you're obviously within the meaning is when you win a Nobel prize you'll recall that that President Obama got an Obama prize within the first few weeks of office when he was in office, they they handed guy Nobel prize for basically, just not being George Bush. He was given a Nobel peace prize for not being George Bush. And and then Donald Trump comes in there and actually did a thing. But he did a thing. And whether you like Trump, don't like Trump, you'll recall, the we had nothing, but trouble from the rocket man until and Matt how unorthodox is Donald Trump style. You know, the way he went after him calling on the little rocket man all stuff, and there's a whole lot of us thought. Oh, gosh. Here we go this. This is going to be this is how world we'll historians will look back at this moment and think this is how World War three started with Donald Trump and his bombastic language at little rocket, man. But. Evidently worked so far. It seems to have worked and and a lot of people thought that if anybody is deserving of a Nobel prize peace prize, it'd be Donald Trump for a -verting what would have otherwise been World War three. But instead, no, it's it's going to my understanding is they they helped the to the two recipients put an end is sex violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict in the war on terror with the Slavic state, which certainly isn't a bad thing. That's that's awesome. But anybody who holding out hope that Donald Trump was gonna win? No one really believes that the Nobel committee would give Donald Trump a peace prize. Right. I mean, that's not possible. Right. Seems like it's too political. I don't I this of people that just don't like Donald Trump, and they're going to do everything they can to make sure that Donald Trump doesn't get new shiny trophy. And something else that he can brag about and I it seems impossible. Maybe maybe next year. Maybe if we still stay on course for not having a a war with North Korea may be taken apart that side. I think that's also a question. Mark is how much work they done to denuclearize. Yeah. That's a good point. Right. Because we don't really know. And maybe this is all a bluff on behalf of the little rocket, man. You know, maybe maybe World War three starts tomorrow, and the Nobel committee is wise, and they they shouldn't have given him a Nobel peace prize.

"It has not been a good week for the government. In Myanmar.

Now, there is no way of stripping on sung Chee of the peace price you on moving a quarter of a century ago, and now it's emerged of book on the ranger. Crisis is not only full of fake photographs is also a faintly astonishing attempt to rewrite history apparently to provide some sort of justification for the military's actions who for more on this, I'm joined by Greg polling fellow at the southeast Asia program at the center for strategic and international studies in Washington DC. This book was published in July, but now it turns out a lot of the photos in it are in fact from Tanzania or Bangladesh, and also that the military is presenting need a false history of what's been going on. Yeah, that's right. And this is depressingly not surprising. The military has for decades at least sixty six. He's been on a mission to erase thorough Hingis from the national story of Myanmar. You say, this is something that the time to over and over again. But but here is I in the events of the last twelve months. Here is something that is attracted a great deal of international attention. So what made them think that they could get away with just creating sort of false narrative? I'm not honestly sure that the military memoir cares if they get away in the eyes of the international community, what the military cares belt as they cared about for years is creating an enemy in the minds of the people to justify their own, continued influence their own continued role in government. And so painting the hinge as interlopers looking to steal the the land and the upturn gone mar works to their advantage. I'm bats. The, that's the thread that runs through this book. Yes, absolutely. That you know it races, the fact that there have been Muslims living in a western recon state along the border with with what is now Bangladesh for hundreds of years, and that they previously recognized as an ethnic group national group in the country after after the end of the era, and it was only in the sixties and seventies that they suddenly a stripped citizenship and painted as an invading force, essentially, at least economically invading force from Bunga. And this is any comes light because of an investigation by by journalists have looked through this book. Well, there's not a whole lot of due diligence being done in on Moore itself. Not the pain was too broad a brush because there are certainly some exceptions. But for the most flirt journalists, civil society leaders and the pro democracy government have been complicit in this project of dehumanizing, the Hindu, and haven't done much of anything to fact check the government narrative. Now, you mentioned the civilian government. We have to talk about sound see to say the Nobel committee saying this week. There is no structural mechanism for revoking a a Nobel peace prize. She's coming for a huge amount of criticism. There is a theory that she is incapable of preventing the violence that may be true in the narrowest sense.
