When visitors to the US are treated to the "Pat-Down," it does little to encourage visitors to return and is likely to do just the opposite and keep them away from the US.

JACKSON, Miss., Dec. 9 (UPI) -- The Transportation Security Administration's patdown of India's ambassador to the United States at a Mississippi airport has ruffled feathers, officials said.

Ambassador Meera Shankar was so upset by a physical patdown at Jackson-Evers International Airport that she said she won't return to the United States, the (Jackson, Miss.) Clarion-Ledger reported.
