This story on CNN about the discovery of an Iraqi torture chamber actually comes from an embedded BBC reporter, but their website doesn't seem to have anything on it:

One room was completely bare, except for two tires and an electric cable, the BBC reporter said.
He said he was told that an interrogator would use the tires to stand on, while water was poured into the room and the prisoner electrocuted.
The reporter said he interviewed one man, who did not want to be identified, who said prisoners were blindfolded, tied up, hung on the hooks and then beaten.
The man also said a citizen who committed a crime could avoid being tortured by putting up cash -- about $1,600 for stealing, and almost twice that for murder, according to the BBC reporter

It's just further evidence of how brutal the doomed regime is, and is an interesting item in an of itself. But now I'm wondering why the BBC News site, which is "updated every minute of every day," doesn't seem to have any mention of it, when it's their own source.
