In raw video released by the Associated Press, President Obama is seen golfing at the start of his two week vacation at well known “One-Percenter” retreat, Martha’s Vineyard.

The vacation comes as United States forces have been involved in military strikes against Islamic State (formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) targets in the north of Iraq. The strikes have been in support of humanitarian airdrops in the Mount Sinjar region. Some  40,000 ethnic Yazidis have fled to Mount Sinjar in the wake of IS’ rampage across northern Iraq, which has been marked by instances of extreme brutality including public beheadings, crucifixions and mass executions.
