NOT THE ONION:

Clinton email chain discussed Afghan national's CIA ties, official says (Catherine Herridge, Pamela K. Brown,  February 17, 2016  FoxNews.com)

Based on the timing and other details, the email chain likely refers to either an October 2009 Times story that identified Afghan national Ahmed Wali Karzai, the half-brother of then-Afghan president Hamid Karzai, as a person who received "regular payments from the Central Intelligence Agency" -- or an August 2010 Times story that identified Karzai aide Mohammed Zia Salehi as being on the CIA payroll. Ahmed Wali Karzai was murdered during a 2011 shoot-out, a killing later claimed by the Taliban.

Pretty much all you need to know about the classification regime--they think news reports are secret until they're forwarded.
