Depends On What You Mean By "Peace"

PowerLine takes issue with the latest Nobel Peace Prize winner. And for good cause. Wangari Maathai has stated for the record:

Do not be naive. AIDS is not a curse from God to Africans or the black people. It is a tool to control them designed by some evil-minded scientists.
I may not be able to say who developed the virus, but it was meant to wipe out the black race

Clearly this Nobel Laureate has access to some new definitiion of the word "peace" that I am unfamiliar with (but apparently the Nobel Committee understands). I don't mean to whine, but wasn't there ANYONE else in the entire world who was worthy to receive this prize? Come on...ANYONE???
