WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Monday meets with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. The first family returned to the White House on Sunday after a two week vacation on Martha’s Vineyard puncuated by a brief return to the White House and dealing with the Islamic State after it beheaded a U.S. journalist, and with protestors in Ferguson, Missouri, reacting to the fatal shooting of teen Michael Brown by a police officer. And yes, lots of golf.
