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.
