So earlier today I had read several breaking news stories that stated there are at least 4 so called "Black Widow" is in Sochi and waiting to strike at the Olympic Games that start on Feb. 6th.
If you are not familiar with the term, it basically means these are women who were married to men who are known terrorist and these men have since been killed, either through a bombing themselves or in the field of battle.
In each of the articles that I first read stated that terrorist have warned they have a surprise package awaiting those who are at the Olympics.
A couple of things here strike me. First, the package they speak of. Is this just a warning it could be a bomb, suicide or other? Could it be a much larger bomb that is in place and will be detonated inside the village or one of the main venues? Please note, as late as September there were construction delays and there were reports out of the area that contractors were trying to see if they could get the games moved back 1 or 2 weeks. Putin let them know that this was not a possibility.
This leads me to purely speculate that it is possible people who sympathize with the Baltic States were working on the site and very well could have brought in material that is in place. This could possibly lead to a Beslan style attack.
Third, when I hear package, I think of Nuclear.
Lastly, the fact that the U.S. is sending personal and will have the Navy on stand by with a plan in place to evacuate our athletes is not surprising but isn't reassuring that our gov't doesn't feel safe.
So my question is basically what is the package and what repercussions could we see if an attack does take place.
