White House: We should have sent higher-level official to Paris

Washington Post: The White House said it should have sent a higher-profile official to the unity rally in Paris. The U.S. Ambassador to France attended the Sunday march. 

Republicans criticized President Obama’s administration for not having a more prominent presence at the rally, where 1.5 million people marched to show unity following the attacks in Paris last week.
