TSA trying to find screening balance

The TSA and the White House are attempting to reach agreements on airport screenings.

The White House has said they are taking complaints into consideration, but for the time being, the current screenings are necessary due to current risks, the New York Times said.

According to the Associated Press, Transportation Security Administration head John Pistole said that the agency would work to make screening methods less invasive, but didn't say when the changes would take place.

The new full body scans are being used in 70 of the 450 airports in the United States, and thorough body pat-downs are offered for those who refuse the scan.
