Here are four videos just uploaded in Indonesian featuring the first interview ever in the White House by an Indonesian TV channel. Obama intended to be visiting Indonesia at this time, but domestic concerns took precedence and the trip has been delayed to June. In the meantime though the videos provide some insight into not only his views on foreign policy in the region but also personal experience such as how much Indonesian he remembers (apparently he used to be fluent), and the entire interview has Indonesian subtitles too so those studying the language should watch the whole thing.
