Administration Delivers High-Profile Slap To Russia In Runup To Sochi Olympics   Leave a comment

If this isn’t the clearest sign of American & Western discontent towards the draconian direction Russia has taken in recent months, what is?

In what is definitely being perceived as a slap at the Russians, neither President Obama, Mrs. Obama, Vice President Biden, nor Mrs. Biden will be attending the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Instead, former Secretary of Homeland Security, but now-private-citizen, Janet Napolitano will lead the US delegation, and the delegation will include former tennis star Billie Jean King, who is openly-gay.

That means no top administration officials will be going to Sochi, a dramatic departure from previous Olympic Games

The German and French presidents have also said they will not be attending.

The US delegation, listed below, includes at least two gay people.  Both Billie Jean King and Caitlin Cahow, who was an Olympic silver medalist and bronze medalist in women’s ice hockey, are openly gay.(AmericaBlog)
