The Transportation Security Administration is increasing security measures.
Fliers will soon find about 150 more body scanners across the country. The devices allow screeners to see under people's clothes and can reveal hidden weapons and explosives. The TSA says the devices are necessary to move forward the war on terror domestically, but critics say scanners are intrusive and the House passed legislation to restrict their use to passengers flagged for other reasons.
