Security Report: Tsarnaev Sought Insurgents Near 2014 Olympic Site

The area of Russia where Tamerlan Tsarnaev went to join up with terrorists is near where Islamist terrorists bent on disrupting the Olympics are located.

Putin has promised to protect Sochi within a “ring of steel.” The city is wall-to-wall with metal detectors, bomb-sniffing dogs and explosive detectors. But the terrorist groups say they will target not just the host city but other areas of Russia.

“Soft targets” such as transportation systems are particularly vulnerable.  It is too early to tell whether the threats will keep away either athletes or tourists, but it is likely that terrorism considerations will play a role in future selections of Olympic host sites.

    Good reporting, Lori. Just yesterday, it occurred to me that while I would like to see Israeli athletes do well in the Olympic Games, this might be one to skip. I'm concerned about
    terrorists trying to imitate what happened at the German Olympics. Let's hope that with excellent security measures in place, there will be no acts of terrorism.

  2. My Norwegian Lutheran mother married my Danish Jewish father in 1943. The wonderful marriage lasted 65 years. All grandparents were supportive. My sister and I grew up in a great cultural mix and do not feel the least diluted. Recently comparing notes in our 60's we decided that we lived a charmed life.
