Politifact 2012: Obama top missile-firing laureate

President Obama "has fired more cruise missiles than all other Peace Prize winners combined."

-- sign along Route 12 near Keene, N.H.

Our ruling

Based on our review of historical records and interviews with military historians, it appears the sign along the New Hampshire highway is correct. The closest was Sadat during the Yom Kippur war, but it appears he was far short of the number fired by Obama, even in combination with other laureates. If we hear of additional evidence, we'll revisit this item. But in the meantime, the numbers indicate the sign is correct. We rate the statement True.
