The US Airways pilot who landed a jetliner in the Hudson River in 2009 criticized the Transportation Security Administration's use of pat downs and full-body security scanners. Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger said the use of the scanners and pat-downs for airline personnel "just isn't an efficient use of our resources" and noted that pilots and flight attendants are "thoroughly screened." Meanwhile, TSA Administrator John Pistole is scheduled to testify before Congress today and is likely to face questions about the security procedures.
