    So he wasnt a thug but you want to start a thread calling him one, and when someone points out the very heart of your OP is wrong, you say go start another thread. And a high ranking official did go to the Generals funeral. Next thread fact check first.

    "Although neither President Obama nor Vice President Joe Biden attended Gen. Greene's funeral, a high-ranking Obama administration official was present. As the military publication Stars and Stripes noted in its reporting of the funeral, U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel attended the ceremony and met with Greene's family: "

    Pretty sure General Odierno works for the president as the Army Chief of Staff. Ray Odierno is part of the presidents National Security Team

    President Barack Obama Fills Out His New National Security Team | The White House

    Also, secretary Chuck Hagel is a cabinet member of Obama which also someone who works for the president.

    Both of these heavy weights far outweigh the importance of 2 people working at the white house office of public engagement and Broderick Johnson, chairman of the My Brother's Keeper Task Force. I think sending him was a very good idea, to prevent more young people from misbehaving.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Chuck Hagel isn't from the Obama White House.
    He works in the Pentagon.

    Secretary of Defense is a cabinet office and the proper high ranking White House employee to send to a Generals funeral. You people have no shame, you politicize even a tragic death in a putrid failed attempt to discredit our President.

    Some people are in such a big hurry to try to slam President Obama they don't have time to do a little fact-checking.

    Is it true the White House sent no one to General Harold Greene's
    Arlington service?
    And yet this same white house sent 3 employees
    to the thug's funeral in Ferguson?
    Just out of curiosity where did you hear this from? Was it from that "trusted" news organization?

    No, I didn't politicize the Generals death, I just happen to know how the military chain of command works and Obama and Valerie Jarrett don't.

    Now if Obama would have had the White House chef attend the funeral, one could argue that the Obama White House did have someone attend the funeral.

    It's a cabinet level position and he was sent by Obama, which is what is mentioned in the OP. Additionally in all of the places, (mostly chain emails), in which this story has run, it talks about how Obama did not send himself, the vice-president, or the Secretary of Defense to the funeral. The fact that his office is in the Pentagon rather than the White House seems like a meaningless distinction to me.

    Since it also appears to be true that neither Nixon nor Bush attended the funerals of the last active generals to die, I really can't find fault with how Obama handled General Greene's funeral.
