Expert Aaron Cohen says the UK might not like what Mitt Romney said but -- only said what a lot of -- security experts.
You know Aaron you're right about it because of the guys like you and -- -- up that many -- blooded himself.
Had been the first to remind people about this this security lapse on so I don't know why it was a fox alert the world any news alert.
What would Romney was saying was here he was echoing when he heard from.
The London officials would be that as it may are you concerned for these Olympics.
I am concern for the Olympics on in the reason it look -- what we saw with governor Romney or what he said eminence.
The truth is is that people in my business are gonna agree with them and that's a -- and and and I am concerned and experts are concerned because -- there was a colossal failure.
With the security.
Leading up to the Olympics -- that involve the that the failure to produced.
The physical screener this company G G4S and -- falling short you know thousands of guards.
And that led to a major debacle which in fact could ultimately affect the safety.
A potentially the largest terrorist target that we're looking at right now.
What they do and what -- guys that you watch for them to do.
Throughout these next two X.
Well I think it this phase right now it comes down -- the the that physical ability in the training.
Of the manpower providing the screening.
In conjunction with an undercover surveillance detection layer on.
Which -- -- of working very closely in conjunction to be able to preempt potential attacks.
And it really comes down to properly trained guys and I think that again what the governor was trying to bring out which is true.
We're dealing with a very emotional.
State because we have an event that's wrapped around security it's not the other way around it's a huge target so.
I think the main thing is is that -- -- -- layer of screening.
And making sure that those screeners were being there.
And that there was enough manpower and -- that there were properly trained.
You know we ended there the less memorable event that this is a horrible event in -- tonight he's -- to do with the Israeli squad was targeted and killed.
By the PLO I mean we.
-- we've taken a number safeguards since in every quadrennial Olympics sense to avoid that.
Sort of thing.
Have -- I believe that the that the security I mean look at obviously -- Israelis were targeted.
By Islamist extremists.
I think the entire world has been you know tactically leveled now.
As we've seen after 9/11 so Israel obviously isn't alone in and this type of terror now affects the western world Christians Jews.
On and so the Olympics are are clearly.
You know they've been targeted before that are absolutely -- target now at this point.
On I think a lot's been taken from the security and from what we've seen.
You know with -- with that Munich massacre bomb but again.
The undertaken of the security for this type of event is such a colossal.
Deal that there really has to be.
All that quality work done in the preparation phase right and that's where the failure was I think dad.
Not having -- adequate manpower not having -- train properly having these screeners cheating on exams.
Only 75% pass rate it's a problem and you can't have these kind of problems when you're talking about -- -- of this size.
All right Aaron thank you.
-- to get overall eleven corrected it.
In and he died -- delays.
