    White House Debunks Reports It Will Fly China's Flag on South Lawn


    A ceremony, indeed, will take place. But it won't happen on the White House grounds -- rather, on the Ellipse, on the other side of E Street from the presidential residence

    Demonstrations by foreign groups on the Ellipse or in Lafayette Park, in front of the White House, are not uncommon. But foreign flags are only flown on the White House grounds or on Pennsylvania Avenue to mark "state" or "official" visits of the countries' leaders.

    Under those guidelines, the Chinese flag has flown on White House grounds before, in April of 2006, when President Hu Jintao visited then President George W. Bush.

    Your lie was debunked and now you try to put a twist on it. Can you just accept that the report was wrong?

    If political topics are going to be posted in Open Water, they should at least be truthful. Posting BS political propaganda here is flat out wrong.

    You two need to look in the mirror on many in the past. By posting an artical I have lied? Or did I pose a question based on an article?

    Why don't you vote and let us all know where your opinion is?

    If you guys can't see that then it is sad commentary that national pride is not an open discussion.

    Sorry I missed the part about National Pride in your thread title..

    From the comments section in the link you posted..

    Okay, so should a ceremony celebrating 60 years of Chinese Communist rule and its flag being raised be allowed directly ACROSS from the white house?

    Wrong. This not pertaining to a state visit which makes it more controversial.
