The new full body scanners and pat downs being used in airports by the TSA are causing a backlash among passengers.

Some passengers are complaining about invasion of privacy thanks to scanner images and the follow-up pat downs.

Federal officials, led by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, are defending the procedures pointing to recent cargo bomb incidents and last year’s underwear bomber.

The new procedures are also causing long lines at airports.

What do you think?

Are these new scanners and pat down methods needed in order to keep us safe as we fly?
