A meme from previous years that was widely recirculated after the Chattanooga shootings falsely claimed that President Obama had ordered flags to be flown at half-staff following the 2012 death of singer Whitney Houston. That actions was actually a decision made at the state level by New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

No conspiracy to me after reading several online articles(big thread on Reddit bout it), but the inconsistency in regards to previous similar events leaves me wondering. Are the shootings in Tennessee different in some way to the WH?
If there's been a miscommunication or snafu in the WH, correct it and address it. Ignore it or try to explain away the oversight and it's another bash Obama feed fest.

So, the flags were not lowered to half staff following the recent shootings in Tennesse. They were lowered after all the other shootings. Heres is snopes explination. Conspiracy or no?

These service members were unarmed&murdered on US soil the flag should be lowered to half staff in honor of their lives. Did Obama forget?
