Many Persian language sources confirm this news but there is no doubt that no one can ignore this fact.
The regime is torturing its people in a wide range.
Hamid was an example of milions who were tortured by the regime officials.
You didnt see Ms. kazemi?

Yes, I have no doubt that the regime has tortured and killed it's people.
And this particular story may be entirely true, or it may be true up until the involvement of CNN. It's possible that was added to get the story more attention. I understand how that can happen and why. It's possible that a young reporter who indirectly works for CNN still has the video(s) in his possession.
It's important to try to stick to the facts if we're going to be emailing and phone calling the media regarding news we receive. We don't want to hurt our credibility. We want them to feel they can rely on stories we send as being true. Otherwise, they won't pay attention to what we say, and that defeats our purpose of trying to get the news out & the media involved in supporting the Iranian people in their struggle. When there's doubt, we have to say in our postings, that "this hasn't been verified," or "this is what is being said" or "this is what I heard", then we can work from there to get verification. Credibility is everything. Otherwise, we're just a rumor mill.

Can you come up with a list of those other news sources that can confirm this story? Also, whether they got their confirmation from another news source, an anonymous person, Hamid, etc.
If you can come up with this, there may be a way to put pressure on news over here to report it.
