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. On his blog, Tyner noted that if he had known that the scanners displayed travelers' naked bodies, he would have decided not to fly. Tyner eventually agreed not to board the flight, and his ticket was refunded. Officials with the TSA were not available to comment on the incident.
