The Obamas have said they plan to stay in Washington to allow their younger daughter, Sasha, to finish her final two years at Sidwell Friends School. Older first daughter Malia Obama will graduate from the private Quaker school this year and plans to attend Harvard University in 2017 after taking a gap year.

The 8,200-square-foot mansion, which was built in 1928, sits off Massachusetts Avenue NW by Embassy Row and Rock Creek Park.

According to Politico, the first family will lease the home owned by Joe Lockhart and Giovanna Gray after they leave the White House in January. Lockhart was the White House press secretary during the Clinton administration and has moved to New York to become executive vice president for communications for the National Football League.

Zillow states the home has nine bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms. It last sold in 2014 for $5,295,000. The home features a castle-like brick exterior and sits on a quarter-acre lot just down the road from the Naval Observatory, the vice president’s official residence, the Associated Press reported.

Benedict Arnold may have some unlikely new competition for America’s biggest turncoat.

In the debut issue of Marvel Comics’ Captain America: Steve Rogers out today, the star-spangled superhero of comic books and movies is revealed to be — and always has been — an agent of the evil organization Hydra, a ruthless bunch that Cap’s been fighting since World War II.

It’s a flooring disclosure for the popular character who celebrated his 75th anniversary this year and is currently on the big screen in Captain America: Civil War. But Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort confirms that it’s really Steve Rogers and not some clone, shapeshifting Skrull, Life Model Decoy or a Cap from an alternate universe.

HIGH WYCOMBE, England — The mother of a British man killed while fighting alongside terrorists in Somalia says families of would-be militants should take their passports to block them from traveling abroad.

This week, another mother of a terrorist from London made a similar plea for authorities to take passports to prevent loved ones from becoming militants abroad.

A son of Maha Elgizouli was identified this week as the fourth member of an Islamic State cell of Britons dubbed the “Beatles” by their hostages in Syria.
