Images of people being pat down at airports is fueling debate over what security is appropriate at airports and what goes too far.

If you have seen any of the video of the pat downs of people and their private areas you can't help but question how intrusive it is.  And you may even be a little angry that this is what air travel has come to in the U.S.
