A traveler's refusal to pass through a full-body scanner and his subsequent complaints about a pat-down has intensified the debate about the Transportation Security Administration's screening methods. John Tyner, who was traveling through the San Diego airport, recorded the incident on his cell phone and later posted it on his blog.
