Homeland Security Chair: There’s a “High Degree of Probability” of Explosion During Sochi Olympics

What is the likelihood of an explosive attack at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia?

According to the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security on Sunday, there’s a “high degree of probability” of an explosion or bomb attack, CBS DC reports.

“There’s a high degree of probability that something will detonate, something will go off,” Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) told Chris Wallace on Fox News. “But I do think it’s probably, most likely going to happen outside of the Ring of Steel at the Olympic Village.”

“You’re saying, as the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, you think there is a high probability there will be some explosion outside the Ring of Steel?” Wallace responded.

“I hope I’m wrong in this assessment, but you’re talking about an area of the world where suicide bombers go off all the time,” McCaul responded.

“The fact is, right now, the eyes of the world are upon these Olympics. The Chechen extremists know this. They want to make a global statement. They want to make a jihad statement. And what better time to do this than right now?”
