Obama Refuses To Boycott Olympics

President Obama on Friday rejected calls for the United States to boycott the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia. “I know that one question that's been raised is, how do we approach the Olympics? I want to just make very clear right now I do not think it's appropriate to boycott the Olympics. We've got a bunch of Americans out there who are training hard, who are doing everything they can to succeed,” Obama said. Some have said the U.S. should skip the Games in Sochi, Russia, over the country's harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. Others have pushed the boycott to protest Russia's treatment of gays and lesbians/Mario Trujillo, The Hill. More here.
