Poland's Walesa says the US no longer world leader

Posted:
Poland's former president and Nobel Peace laureate, Lech Walesa, says he plans to deliver some critical words to President Barack Obama when he visits Poland in June to mark 25 years since the country emerged from communism.
   Speaking to The Associated Press Friday, Walesa said the "world is disorganized and the superpower is not taking the lead." The former Solidarity leader said that when he meets Obama in Warsaw, he wants to tell him that the U.S. should inspire and encourage the world into positive action.
   "I will say: Either you want to be a superpower and guide us, or you should give the superpower to Poland and we will know what to do with it. Amen," he said.
   Walesa led Poland's peaceful transition to democracy in the 1980s.
