The Anti-Defamation League called recent criticism of the United States by Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela "offensive, prejudicial and simply wrong." Mandela said the United States cannot be a moral leader because it has committed "unspeakable atrocities in the world," and suggested that the United States does not support the United Nations because the current U.N. leader is black.
