Obama on Nobel Prize: He is keeping it because he didn't deserve it in the first place or something

In a great example of circular reasoning, President Obama doesn't see any contradiction in keeping his Nobel Peace Prize because he had two wars going on when he received it.
(Politico) — President Obama defended his Nobel Peace Prize on Tuesday, saying that Americans “don’t see any contradiction” in him ordering an attack on Libya to make sure “people aren’t butchered because of a dictator who wants to cling to power.”

“When I received that award, I specifically said there was an irony because I was already dealing with two wars,” Obama said in an interview with CNN from El Salvador. “So I am accustomed to this contradiction of being both a commander-in-chief but also someone who aspires to peace.”
