    OSLO, Norway. - The committee that awards the Nobel Peace Prize says it decided to give that prize to President Barack Obama to "promote what he stands for" and for the "positive processes" that he's started. The prize was created partly to encourage ongoing peace efforts, but Obama's work is at a far earlier stage than with past winners of the prize. Obama's name had been mentioned as a possible recipient, but many Nobel watchers believed it was too soon into his presidency.>>

WASHINGTON. - When he accepts his Nobel Peace Prize Thursday, President Barack Obama plans to talk about what it means to wage war.
     
Just nine days after he announced he was sending 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan, White House officials say Obama will use his speech to talk about what goes into a decision like that.
     
Obama is flying overnight to Oslo to be there for the award ceremony and banquet.
     
When asked if Obama is excited about the award, national security aide Ben Rhodes said he thinks Obama feels "as if it places a responsibility upon him." He's helping to put together Obama's speech for Oslo.
     
In that speech, the president is expected to outline his vision of American leadership and emphasize the responsibilities of all nations to advance the cause of peace.
