Very real worries about Olympic security

Capitol Hill is worried, with good reason, about security at the next Olympic games, which are scheduled to take place in Russia:
Top Capitol Hill lawmakers on Sunday expressed concerns about terror attacks at the upcoming Olympic games in Sochi, Russia, amid nearby terror attacks and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s assurances that his country will “do whatever it takes” to protect athletes and visitors.

“The threats are real,” Texas GOP Rep. Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told ABC’s “This Week.”

McCaul is among those who think an attack during the games next month will most likely occur outside of the Olympic city and that terrorists will go after “soft targets” such as roads and transportation systems.
He's absolutely right to be concerned, and there've been more tragedies recently that were caused by jihadists:
On Sunday, in a new video that was posted on a Chechen extremist site, two militants vowed that tourists and Russians attending the games would not be safe.

On Friday, nine people were injured when a bomb exploded in the Russian southern province of Dagestan, which has become the center of an Islamist insurgency that has spread across the Caucasus region after two separatist wars in Chechnya.

The region is about 300 miles east of Sochi.

They followed two suicide bombing attacks in Volgograd in late December that killed 31 people and are believed to also have been orchestrated by Islamic militants. One attack was at a bus station, the other was at a train station. Such attacks had been limited to the country’s North Caucasus region, to which at least one of the Boston Marathon bombers was connected.

McCaul suggested the two suicide bombers in December were connected to an Al Qaeda faction.
One of the leading reasons why jihadists do these sadistic acts is because destroying other people's happiness is a core component of Islam. But how good a job will Putin's security staff do in making sure local Islamofascists don't succeed in causing a tragedy?
