TSA Says Passengers With Religious Objections To Both Body-Scan and Pat-Down Cannot Board

John Pistole, head of the Transportation Security Administration told the Senate Homeland Security Committee yesterday that airline passengers who refuse both a full body scan and a pat down search will not be allowed to board a plane, even if the refusal is for religious reasons.
