TSA: Pat-down changes out of the question

BROOKLYN - Controversial pat-downs and a body scan system have drawn fire from travelers and politicians, but the Transportation Security Administration says changes are out of the question.

The head of the TSA, John Pistole, says the current terror threat level is too high to reduce the use of full-body scans and pat-downs.

Pistole also says the agency will try to make adjustments and refinements to the new procedures as needed.
