Thorbjørn Jagland is a Norwegian politician from the Labour Party. He served as the Secretary General of the Council of Europe from 2009 to 2019. He served as Prime Minister of Norway from 1996 to 1997, as Minister of Foreign Affairs from 2000 to 2001 and as President of the Storting from 2005 to 2009.

Jagland, was/is much ridiculed in the media for his quotes and statements and frequently seen as incompetent, even "stupid", but has in fact been a loyal deep state functionary, in all his jobs.

Nobel Peace Prize Committee Chair

Even by the standards of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, which is close to Western foreign policy, Jagland helped pick some remarkably pro-war winners. Several of his winners became central in US/NATO propaganda operations.

As Chair of the Nobel Prize Committee, he awarded Barack Obama the prize for 2009.

In 2010, it picked Chinese Liu Xiaobo or his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China."[1]

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2012 was awarded to the European Union for "....have for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.[2]

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2013 was awarded to the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) for "...its extensive efforts to eliminate chemical weapons"[3]

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2014 was shared between Pakistani national Malala Yousafzai and Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi. The prize motivation states: "for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education".

On 3 March 2015 Jagland was demoted by the five-person Norwegian Nobel Committee, which elected Kaci Kullmann Five as its new chair. Jagland's demotion is without precedent in the history of the Nobel Peace Prize. After the demotion, Jagland continued to serve as an ordinary member of the committee.

In 2019 the leader of the committee asked each of the members if any of them had been in contact with Jeffrey Epstein; in 2020 Jagland changed his answer; Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Gates had a meeting with Jagland at his residence in Strasbourg in 2013, according to media in October 2020.[4][5]
