Obama Gets Libya Briefing

On this Sunday, Day 3 of vacation, Obama gets briefed on Libya (rebels close in on the capital), then golfs at Vineyard Golf Club:
From principal deputy press secretary Josh Earnest:

This morning, the President was briefed on the situation in Libya by John Brennan, including inputs from our team in Benghazi. The national security team will continue to provide updates to the President on this situation, as necessary. The United States continues to communicate closely with our allies, partners, and the TNC. We believe that Qadhafi's days are numbered,
and that the Libyan people deserve a just, democratic and peaceful future. Obama is being followed around by the press pool. Read their updates here.
