Transcript for Russia's Sochi Olympics Security Could Be Flawed
Speaking of security, the opening of the winter olympics in Russia is now less than a week away. Terrorists have threatened to attack the games and now American officials say they found flaws in Russia's security plans. ABC's kirit radio has details. Good morning.
