All that money, and security is still suspect at best. The constant specter of an attack has gone from long-shot possibility to an unfortunate and utterly frightening "place your bets!" with odds at near even. While President Obama has said that Russian President Vladimir Putin has shared security details with him, DCI Advisory President Steven Yates is hard pressed to believe that anything of detail or of quality has been shared. On FOX News, he declared that the Super Bowl will have far better security than will be seen in Sochi. If something happened in Sochi, Yates asks, "Would the Russians be really open to international intervention to help?"
I have wished nothing but a safe trip for the athletes, and their safe return home. And I still do. Now I add the reporters to the list, as "Dangerous Face Water" may be more terrifying, and more damaging, than luge.
