Kissinger had the decency to not attend the ceremony, donate the money to charity and offer to return the prize after things in Vietnam got rough.

I'm not praising the guy but it's a tidbit I've learned while reading up on the Peace Prize.

There are all kinds of bullshit problems with the prize, the more I read the less value I put in it.
