Obama Order /flags At Half Staff For Chatanooga Victims

President Barack Obama today ordered that U.S. flags be flown at half-staff at the White House and all public buildings until sunset on Saturday in memory of five service members gunned down last week in attacks in Chattanooga.

Obama’s order came after some critics questioned why he had not done it sooner, noting that he had ordered the lowering of flags after the elementary school shooting in Connecticut, the Boston Marathon bombing and a shooting at Fort Hood.
