Confederate flag protected

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA- A Confederate flag displayed at the Citadel military school in South Carolina is protected by state law according to the state attorney general's office.

A Charleston City Councilman wanted to withhold nearly a million dollars in funding from the school unless the flag was taken down.

But Solicitor General Robert Cook says the flag is protected by South Carolina's Heritage Act.

It addresses monuments and memorials on public property that are dedicated to wars where the state fought or to African-American or Native-American history.

The Citadel says while the flag emits strong emotions for some, the school hopes the opinion from the solicitor general closes the matter.
