EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) - President Barack Obama is getting off the island.

In a rare move for Obama, he's taking a break in the middle of his Martha's Vineyard vacation to return to Washington for unspecified meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers.

The White House has been cagey about exactly why the president needs to return to Washington for those discussions.

Part of the decision appears aimed at countering criticism that Obama is spending two weeks on a resort island in the midst of numerous crises.

They turned the first week of Obama's vacation into a working holiday. He made on-camera statements on U.S. military action in Iraq and the situation in Ferguson, Missouri.

He also called foreign leaders.

Obama plans to go back to Massachusetts on Tuesday.
