An anonymous reader writes: A Swedish professor of sociology has nominated Snowden for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, setting up an awkward situation in which one peace-prize nobel laureate is persecuted by another (Obama). Giving him the prize would also "save the Nobel Peace Prize from the disrepute that incurred by the hasty and ill-conceived decision to award U.S. President Barack Obama" the award in 2009. The professor, Stefan Svallfors notes ultimately that at great personal cost, "Edward Snowden has helped to make the world a little bit better and safer."
