Bruce Schneier has blogged about a ridiculous situation where police in Kent confiscated a 'War on Terror' board game.

According to Cambridge News online, Kent police said they had confiscated the game because the balaclava included "could be used to conceal someone's identity or could be used in the course of a criminal act".

As Schneier points out, "Don't they realize that balaclavas are for sale everywhere in the UK? Or that scarves, hoods, handkerchiefs, and dark glasses could also be used to conceal someone's identity?"

The satirical game was confiscated after being found in the possession of protesters at Kingsnorth power station.
