BRASILIA, Brazil  — A Brazilian senator has nominated National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.

Sen. Vanessa Grazziotin heads the Senate panel investigating U.S. espionage in Brazil. She says in a Tuesday statement that Snowden’s revelations contribute to a more “stable and peaceful world.”

Grazziotin says when governments “work secretly against citizens and states, global peace and stability are more difficult to achieve.”

Two Norwegian politicians have also jointly nominated Snowden for the prize. Anyone can be nominated for the prestigious honor.

Snowden’s revelations showed that Brazil was the top NSA target in Latin America, with spying that included the monitoring of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s cellphone and hacking into the internal network of the state-run oil company Petrobras.

  1. Considering who has been a Nobel peace laureate in the past, that is putting Snowden on the wall of shame. Strangely enough, I knew all about surveillance long before him, and not to sound LaRouchist, there must be something behind the timing of these alleged “revelations”. On a side note, Google equates fascism and socialism in its search results lately, which tops all its previous manipulation and censorship.
