Howler from the TSA

In an interview printed by a newspaper, a TSA rep says:
Imaging technology has been widely accepted as an alternative to the pat-down.
And, then, a couple of sentences later:
Passengers who opt out of imaging technology screening will receive alternative screening, including a physical pat-down.
So... is the pat-down an alternative to the naked scanner, or is the scanner an alternative to groping?
