Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner have ordered flags (yes, “finally”) at the U.S. Capitol to be lowered to half-staff to honor the five servicemen killed in last week’s terror attack in Chattanooga:

Note: If you see a rumor that President Obama lowered the flags at the White House for Whitney Houston, that’s not true. It was Gov. Chris Christie who did that:
We’re hard on President Obama, but fair! 🙂
