Obama On Middle East Trip: US Must Lead By Example, Be "Honest" With Israel

In an interview with the BBC's Justin Webb, President Obama discussed his upcoming trip to the Middle East, which will include a much-anticipated speech in Cairo, Egypt.

Obama pledges in the interview that he will not try to impose American values on other countries. However, he also notes that certain values, such as "democracy, rule of law, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion" are universal, and thus fair game for other world leaders to be "encouraged" to uphold.
