Waterboarding is for wimps

"[Security Minister Lord West] says he wants to reinforce every shopping centre, sports ground, school, hospital and restaurant — even every church — against suicide bombers. With billion-pound budgets flashing, he is courted by cohorts of security consultants, defence lobbyists, building contractors, electronic warfare pundits, and health and safety fear merchants. He will not stop until he has allowed al-Qaida (which we are constantly told is 'on its last legs') to drain the exchequer dry and reduce British citizens to gibbering wrecks of fear." —Simon Jenkins
