US Military Offers Anti-IED Tech for Olympic Security

Fears of a terrorist attack


The U.S. military is offering to provide Russia with American counter-IED technology to guard against terror attacks during the Olympics.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey held a face-to-face meeting in Brussels on Tuesday with his Russian counterpart, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, where the two talked about the terror threat facing the Olympics in Sochi.

Dempsey told The New York Times the Pentagon is willing to give Russia equipment designed to disrupt radio and cellular signals used to remotely detonate improvised explosive devices.
