A top U.S. counterterrorist official says there are "a number of specific threats" aimed at this week's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia - with the greatest danger coming from the Caucasus Emirate, which has threatened to attack the games.
President Barack Obama's choice for his next counterterrorism chief is Matthew Olsen, a former prosecutor with extensive experience in intelligence matters for the federal government, the White House announced Friday.
Matthew Olsen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, is telling Congress Tuesday that the U.S. and Russia are tracking threats of "varying degrees" of credibility.
He said potential attacks seem more likely outside the venues for the games, and instead in the area or region around Sochi.
