The majority of U.S. athletes are expected to arrive in Russia Thursday for the start of the 2014 Olympic Games. As they arrive, Andrew Spencer reports U.S. officials are warning of another potential threat, especially concerning travel to Sochi. As athletes from all over the world converge on Sochi for the 2014 Olympic Games, a new concern about security in Russia comes in a bulletin from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. "Warning about this potential threat where explosives can be put in toothpaste containers or cosmetics," says Republican Rep. Michael McCaul, Homeland Security Committee Chairman. The bulletin warns toothpaste tubes and cosmetic containers could be used to smuggle explosiv e materials onto flights into Russia or into Sochi. "The Olympic site itself probably is locked down pretty well," says Republican Rep. Peter King of New York. "There is that ring of steel around the olympics itself. But getting there and the surrounding areas i would say there's real cause for concern." A U.S. law enforcement official tells CNN the alert is specific to the start of the Olympics. That source also says intelligence is picking up increased chatter about regional transportation hubs outside the Sochi area. Some says the security alert leaves a lot of open-ended questions. "In a setting like this, what is an airline to do or what is the TSA to do or a passenger to do with regards to toothpaste?" asked Mitt Romney, former CEO of the Salt Lake Olympic Organizing Committee. "Are we going to put in place immediately restrictions on any kind of tubes or any kind of cosmetics going in flights going towards Russia?" A senior Obama administration official says the president has been made aware of the latest chatter. Secrertary of State John Kerry says people who want to go to the Olympics should still go. "We feel that everything has been done that can be done to try to guarantee people's safety and security," Kerry said. He says the venues will be as safe as any large public event can be.
