President Barack Obama is turning out to be no different than President George W. Bush in maintaining a policy of war instead of peace. Since the first year of his presidency, the Obama administration war policy has been rightly questioned by public intellectuals, such as Michael Moore, but not by the Nobel Prize organization.

More recently, just this month (in January 2013), members and allies of Amnesty International held a demonstration of the 11-year anniversary of the first detainees being sent to the U.S. facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, The Huffington Post reported.
After his first presidential election, President Obama said that he would close the detention camp by January 2010, but the Guantanamo Bay detention facility remains in use today. The protesters demonstration in front of the Supreme Court, marched along Pennsylvania Avenue, and held a vigil in front of the White House. (see photo)
