mvar writes “Whistle-blower site WikiLeaks has been nominated for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize by a Norwegian politician who cited its role in freedom of speech, news agency NTB reported Wednesday. ‘WikiLeaks is one of this century’s most important contributors to freedom of speech and transparency,’ parliamentarian Snorre Valen said in his nomination. Valen cited WikiLeaks’ role in disclosing the assets of Tunisia’s former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and his nearest family, contributing to the protests that forced them into exile.”
