Terrorist bombings put Sochi Olympics in ‘Caucasus Emirates’ bulls-eye

Back-to-back terrorist bombings in southern Russia have Olympic organizers worried about the upcoming Sochi Winter games just a month away.

The deadly attacks in Volgograd, just 250 miles from Sochi, suggest that Russia is targeted for more violence.

Determined not to repeat of America’s breakdown in Benghazi, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the National Anti-Terrorism Committee to escalate counter-terrorism operations all over the country.

All told, there have been at least 32 serious terrorist attacks inside Russia this year. Russian authorities are investigating Wahhabi recruitment and terror training facilities in Dagestan and Abkhazia.

In June, Doku Umarov, known as the "Russian Bin Laden," posted a video calling for an escalating campaign of terrorism on behalf of the "Caucasus Emirates" which he purports to run.

“The entire Caucasus region has been thoroughly penetrated by Saudi-funded jihadist terrorists who have been operating in the region since the fall of the Soviet Union two decades ago,” said LaRouchePAC, headed by former U.S. presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche.

Recent reports indicate that Wahhabi clerics are recruiting Russian nationals to the Saudi fundamentalist cause.

In 2000, the Russian government filed a series of diplomatic protests to the British government over the recruitment of Islamist terrorists at mosques throughout the UK.

Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia's intelligence chief and 9/11 sponsor Prince Bandar bin-Sultan reportedly threatened to unleash Wahhabi terrorism against Russia. LaRouche said the threat was issued in a meeting in Moscow with President Putin, if Russia did not agree to support the overthrow of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad.

Since then, a growing number of Western leaders – including British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Francois Hollande – announced they will not attend the Sochi Olympics.

President Barack Obama is sending two gay athletes – Billie Jean King and Brian Boitano – to lead the U.S. sports contingent.
