Daily Beast columnist Kirsten Powers suggested on Fox News Thursday night that President Obama should give back his Nobel Peace Prize after leading the United States into war.

“Yeah, he should have given it back a long time ago, actually," she said. "But, you know, for the drone war, for the escalating the war in Afghanistan, having all these people die unnecessarily, plenty of civilians have been killed by his drone war, including children.”

Powers cited the Bureau of Investigative Journalism pointing out that an estimated 200 children were being killed by Obama's drone war.

Powers also explained that she did not support the use of military force in Syria, questioning Obama's case for action after 100,000 people have already died as a result of the conflict.

"I don't understand why there is a moral imperative now but there wasn't a moral imperative a year ago," she said.
