Sakharov human rights award?

Hans Blix and Mohamed El Baradei have both been nominated for the Sakharov human rights award, given out by the European Parliament.

It's one thing if the European Parliament wants give them an award for their "public service", but I fail to see how either one of them have done anything to improve human rights. In fact, it was Blix who was trying his hardest to keep Saddam in power, the same Saddam who has tortured and murdered thousands of innocent people in Iraq.

How's that for human rights?
