Obama FINALLY Lowers Flag to Half Staff to Mourn Loss of Five Soldiers From Tennessee Terror Attack

The Obama administration said at least two times that it wouldn’t lower the flag to half staff to mourn the loss of five members of our military to a terrorist’s attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Now, almost a full week after the attack, Obama finally ordered the White House flag to half staff.

This afternoon CBS News’ Major Garrett noted that the White House press secretary has been refusing to comment on the lowering of the flag in memory of the fallen soldiers.

The administration had taken quite a lot of criticism on the subject. And by Tuesday morning Congress decided to stop waiting for Obama and lowered its own flag to half staff. Finally, a few hours later, Obama followed suit.
