U.S. Olympians Tell Their Families To Skip Sochi Over Security Concerns

The Pentagon said Thursday that top U.S. and Russian military leaders are discussing security at the Sochi Olympics.

The games, which open Feb. 7, will be held near a region where Islamic terrorists have found for independence from Russia. Some Americans have already decided that Sochi is not for them - including a family with an emotional tie to the Winter Games.

In Wisconsin, Bob Suter was looking forward to seeing his son play for the U.S. Olympic hockey team. But concerns about security in Sochi are keeping him home.

"Everything is security, security. You know, it's just too bad that it takes away from the athletics and the sports and stuff," he said.

His son, Ryan Suter, is a star defenseman for the Minnesota Wild in the National Hockey League and will play for Team USA. But Ryan Suter made it clear that he preferred that his wife, his two children and his parents stay away.

"It's definitely a concern. I look forward to going to the Olympics and being part of it. You hear all these stories about different things; it's definitely a concern," Ryan Suter said.

"It just makes it maybe not as fun that you have to worry nowadays," his father said. His Minnesota teammate, Zach Parise, has also told his family to skip Sochi.

The Olympics have been a target. Look at the bomb that blew up in Atlanta during the Olympics. I think our news media is wanting the Russian Olympics to fail because Russia won't bow over and accept Sodomites.
