Read as much as you can. Nobody is saying he's a time traveler per se, but there are many facts, including nuclear war in 2015.
I seem to remeber that he stated his past is not exactly the same as our present, in other words, there are differing TIMELINES that he travels to get to a 'similar' but at same time, different (in small way) timeline or past. This can explain some of the differences or slight skews in the exact year of events.
If you traveled back 10 years from today, right now, would you know the next days winning lottery numbers, how about the weather for tomorrow, will it rain or shine? How about the winning horse at the local horsetrack off the top of your head for tomorrows race.
Of course if you expressly went back in time to either make money, or to PROVE to people that you are a time traveler, you may want this information handy, however this Titor chap wasn't here for either of those reasons as he stated.
Also the timeline divergence or whatever he called it, isn't a drastic one, it depended on how far fro his time he went, the divergence increased to a point that he wasn't able to go back any further in time, due to there being so many changes
So yes his story has some holes, his predictions some flaws, in the end there are either believers or non-believers based in opinion really.

Actually, all it would take for the olympics to be called off is for someone to steal and subsequentially destroy the olympic torch.
note; if it's destroyed it cannot be recovered.
Ok, quick - no cheating, what were the winning lottery numbers for the Los Angeles PICK6 Lotto for Monday, April 7th, 1998.
