FLOTUS heading to Sikh temple shooting site, but some families not satisfied with President's response

First Lady Michelle Obama is headed to Wisconsin tomorrow to meet with family members of those killed and injured in the Sikh temple shooting earlier this month.

It's been 17 days since the shooting left six people dead, four wounded, and a small immigrant community in deep shock, yet it's the first time anyone from the First Family is visiting. Some in the community say it's taken too long.

Among them is Kanwardeep Singh Kaleka. His uncle, Satwant Singh Kaleka, the president of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin, was killed on that horrible day, and he turned down the offer to meet with the First Lady. He's OutFront to explain why.

OutFront tonight is Jackie Curtiss in Tampa, the site of the upcoming Republican National Convention

"Red line" warnings from the Obama administration – what do they mean?

The proverbial red line.

It's back in the news this week, as President Obama used the phrase when discussing Syria's stockpiles of chemical weapons. If Assad begins using them or even moving them around, in the President's words, it would be a red line for the United States.

We heard a lot about "red lines" when concerns over Iran's nuclear program spiked earlier this year. But are these red line warnings just talk? FULL POST
