A Portuguese spectator mugged the Brazilian runner leading the marathon at the Olympics today, and the guy lost several seconds as a result. He didn’t get the gold. What is this, some kind of reverse-anti-colonial grudge match?
American Special Forces (Delta, for sure) will be at the Olympics in Athens, Greece this summer … and they’ll be carrying their own weapons. It’s highly unusual for any country to permit armed foreign troops on its soil. Sounds like the Greeks have tacitly admitted the inadequacy of their own security measures.
