Rep. Sharon Cissna, D-Anchorage, answers questions from members of the press after disembarking the Alaska Ferry Matanuska, in Juneau, AK., Thursday, Feb. 24th, 2011. Cissna's four-day ordeal began when she refused to be patted down by TSA agents in the Seattle-Tacoma airport following a full body scan that detected her mastectomy, which the TSA agent felt necessitated the extra security precaution of a full body pat down, Cissna's second in three months.

Cisna vowed Thursday to fight for the rights of travelers who have been subjected to what she considers intrusive airport searches by federal airport screeners. less
