Security Concerns Dog the London Olympics

Less than two weeks before the start of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, security issues are taking center stage as a private contractor tasked with providing security for the games announced that it cannot provide the promised number of security personnel on time.  The British government is now scrambling to put an extra 3,500 military personnel on standby during the games.  (Photo: AP Photo/PA)
