Mr. Obama was one of 960 persons who received the bogus notice in an effort by law enforcement “to have the crooks come to us instead of us going to the crooks,” said Sgt. Noah Swayne, director of the operation. Only twelve fell for it, and all of them were arrested.
Mr. Obama was wanted in connection with falsifying a birth certificate to make it appear he was born in the United States. He is being held in an Oslo jail pending a preliminary hearing on Monday.
Police were disappointed that so few crooks showed up. “Unfortunately, the fake Nobel Peace Prize operation is a trick so common that it only attracts the most gullible.”
