U.S. lawmakers: Winter Olympics aren’t safe

By CNN's Greg Clary

Members of both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees say they are extremely concerned about security surrounding next month’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said he wouldn’t go to the games himself – “and I don't think I would send my family,” he told CNN’s State of the Union.

    Wow, worshipers of the dead worm feast in Saudi Arabia must be really proud that the opposite of what they want is happening. The US is expanding the military domain because Islamic dead man worshipers want to kill mericans. Wow, the people who blow up funeral processions of people wearing the wrong thread count burkas now get to see US military resources in the Black Sea. DO YOU REALIZE HOW IRONIC THIS IS? DO YOU WORM FEAST WORSHIPERS HAVE ANY IDEA HOW PATENTLY IRONIC IT IS FOR THE US TO EVEN SEND A MOTORBOAT INTO THE BLACK SEA?

    uhm...did you ever consider I know what I am doing & you don't know what you are doing (within reasonon). They are using Propaganda of course but I would expect them not to do what they say they are going too do when and where they say they are going too do it... Understand they do learn are capable and no Army can stop them... it is after all the Art of War...Remember the tax the musliums pay and collect (in the Cacuses) is for the funding of the Army of Islam terrorist fighters functions much like or exactly like organized crime masqurading as religion. The terrorists will take the fight to as many places they do occupy all at once...this means syria iraq afganistan pakistan egypt not Iran (of course) ect ect ect. the terrorists relize they need too fight outside of the fighting season...the only way they will be doing that in these next weeks will be with terrorists funded by the those said moneyed/ muslium tax base and others like it...including AQ who have redesigned their flag and flag poll to look like a gold fringed -(s-h-i-t-i-n-g)- bunghole siting on a gold finger... just think how much fun they are having watching all the gold and tresure being sacrafice by the terrorists targets...Putin said he would do anything...yet I don't belive that...oh well...let the BS games begin...

    Totally off point.

    The goals of the gihad are very similar to the goals of the nazis. They are/have been demolishing historical sites world wide over the last 15 years especially. From buddhist statues to ancient egyptian relics, all are destroyed with impunity. In their place are built islamic relics , or just ruins.
    Part of raising islam to where they want it will be making the same kind of statements the germans did at the olympics. The germans actually did have some of the brightest, fastest, strongest, etc back at that time. They did it with skill. (not celebrating them just its true) Islam can't really do that at this point so they need an alternative way to project them selves. One way would be to intentionally broadcast threat details on the wire , knowing you will hear it , and issue the warnings you did.
    The problem is they know an attack on the olympics would catalyze the world against them and everything they have done thus far has kept priority one to not catalyze the world against them but to sustain infighting so they have opportunity to win. They fight slow and steady like a tortoise . The best thing they can do is utilize the fear generated to move us with inaction. Broadcast threats and get Americans to stay home and not be a part of it. No doubt there may be some small attacks but I highly doubt they are dumb enough to instigate the entire world at once. It would destroy them.

    I feel you are playing into their hand. Russia needs to work with us to keep it safe and we need to not be moved by inaction.

    Sounds like the Liars are taking a Vacation @ the Olyimpics on the taxpayer dime while they know the terrorists are currently building an alley-way between Syria and Iran (succesfuly)...Where is my backpack full of cash for the death of the 4th amendment...Answer it is @ the exact place where no terrorist events will happen e.g. sporting events in the snow in Russia...

    Too bad the bomb exploded inside the stone building where you could see the flash through the 4 story glass facade is a Iranian style roadside blast. It looks like the building is picked up a couple of inches.

    I couldn't agree more. Sochi is a disaster waiting to happen. A lot of terrorists aren't all that dumb; they could very well figure out a way to get through Russian security, because they don't care if some of them get killed.
