    Personally, I have NO faith in the Russians in keeping the athletes safe. It's hard to know who to suspect. Can anybody tell what a terrorist LOOKS like??

    Well we can not trust our own people. Just look at the past 2 yrs. I think they have a better chance in Russia. To my knowledge the FSB has not gone to the press and " provided a service to the world". If it is one thing they can at least keep tight ranks. More than I can say for US right now. They actually have uncompromising intelligence

    So how much fear mongering and anti-Russian lies and smear can CNN produce?
    Does it want to start a WWIII: it sounds like it, it will not be happy with anything less!

    I think the IOC were nuts for approving the Olympics where they are in the first place. I mean besides the absurdity in putting the winter olympics in a city with palm trees, its merely a stones throw away from one of the most dangerous regions in the whole country. I already feel bad enough for the athletes, I think anyone willing to put their lives on the line to watch some competition are making a silly decision.

    Safe? No. When traveling to the site? No. While in the "secure area"? No, given that someone may fire a rocket or mortar round into the area, fly a model airplane with a bomb or chemical or biological agents into the area, bring in biological agents for release in the area, etc.

    CNN Fox msnbc will do just about anything to destroy the olympics, then to add insult to injury our President will not attend in some twisted protest move. Why must the media destroy this great event.
