President Barack Obama has ordered that flags at the White House and other federal buildings will be flown at half staff until Veterans Day in recognition of the shooting at Fort Hood, Texas. 

“This is a modest tribute to those who lost their lives even as many were preparing to risk their lives for their country,” he said at the White House.

“It’s also a recognition of the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect our safety and uphold our values.” http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/11/06/obama-orders-flags-lowered-to-honor-fort-hood-victims/

The last time flags flew at half mast was when President Barack Obama issued a presidential proclamation ordering that U.S. flags around the world fly at half-mast in honor of Sen. Edward Kennedy http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/08/26/politics/main5267084.shtml

President Obama said, “Our nation’s thoughts and prayers are with the service members, civilians, and families affected by the tragic events at Fort Hood, Texas.   The brave victims, who risked their lives to protect their fellow countrymen, serve as a constant source of strength and inspiration to all Americans. We ask God to watch over the fallen, the wounded, and all those who are suffering at this difficult hour.”http://startelegram.typepad.com/politex/2009/11/president-obama-orders-us-flags-at-halfstaff-for-fort-hood-victims.html

President Obama also took the first two minutes of his speech to give props to his personnel, not the dead military.  Thankfully, he thanked God and not Allah in the end.
