Invasive airport security measures such as searches and body scanners will continue for the “foreseeable future,” said Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano. Politico said that Napolitano, in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” show, also said that security has improved greatly since the failed bombing attempt on an international flight headed to Detroit on Christmas last year.

nepolitano, body, scanners, airportPolitico reported her as saying, "We're always looking to improve systems and so forth. But the new technology, the pat downs, is just objectively safer for our traveling public." When asked about changing current security measures, Napolitano said, "Not for the foreseeable future."

Napolitano maintained that the aviation security situation is better than a year ago and suggested new methods are working as a deterrent. "What we know is that you can't measure the devices that we are deterring from going on a plane," she said according to Politico.
