Budweiser Pulls Out of Olympics Due to Terror Concerns

Budweiser has pulled out of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, citting terrorism concerns.

The beer company apparently hosts a traditional huge beer bash at the Olympics.

But this year, TMZ reports, the company got cold feet because of the ever-increasing terror warnings about Sochi.

As we’d reportedly earlier, the warnings about Sochi have off the charts, with reports that one or more suicide bombers may already have gotten past Olympic security.

[…]

It’s also entirely possibly that Budweiser, while not an official Olympic sponsor, simply no longer wanted its brand associated with an Olympics that’s increasingly being tied to Russia’s oppressive crackdown on human rights.

Coca-Cola, an official Olympic sponsor, has been facing blistering criticism for Olympic security forces, emblazoned with Coke’s logo, detaining a gay dissident for waving a rainbow flag, then turning the gay human rights activist over to the Russian police for further questioning at headquarters.

I’m cynical enough to through this out:  What if these terror warnings have been pulled out of thin air by U.S. government officials to wreck the Olympics and to get back at, and embarrass, Putin?
