"Where the teams and delegations visiting the United States for the Olympic Games in Atlanta have been designated 'official guests' of the United States by the Secretary of State pursuant to §§ 112, 1116 and 1201 of the Criminal Code, those provisions authorize federal agencies to provide their employees to assist in security operations at the Atlanta Olympics upon request of the Attorney General. This responds to your request for our opinion whether the provisions of §§ 112(f), 1116(d), and 1201(f) of the Criminal Code, 18 U.S.C. §§ 112(f), 1116(d), and 1201(f), authorize federal agencies, upon request of the Attorney General, to provide their employees to assist in security operations at the Atlanta Olympics. Under the circumstances presented, we conclude that they do."
