Homeland Security panel chief worried about Sochi
Washington (AP) The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said safety measures undertaken by the Russian government at the Sochi site of the Olympics are the "most impressive" in the history of the Games.
But Texas Republican Rep. Michael McCaul said he remains concerned about the possibility of an attack at the Games, which begin on Feb. 7.
McCaul told CNN Wednesday he believes improvement is needed in intelligence-sharing between Russia and the U.S. and he voiced concern about the risk of a suicide bomber setting off an explosive device.
McCaul visited the site last week. He called it "quite fortified" but said "it only takes one suicide bomber to get in."
He said, "I would hope the president of Russia would allow us to come in and help.
