Let’s have a little talk about secrets. There are all kinds of secrets out there in the world: personal secrets, state secrets, secret recipes, secret sauces, top secrets, secret levels in video games, Victoria’s Secret. The list goes on. But as we’re quickly learning from the rapidly unraveling details of David Petraeus’s affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell, secrets are no longer sacred. In a world where America’s chief of secrets— a.k.a. the director of the Central Intelligence Agency —can’t even keep a silly little extramarital affair to himself, there’s something wrong.

Broadwell's entry in one of the leaked Stratfor documents.

Paula Broadwell, the biographer and reported mistress of CIA director David Petraeus, appears to have been a subscriber to the "private intelligence" firm Stratfor—and that means that her Stratfor login account and its hashed password were hacked and released last year by Anonymous.

The Stratfor hacker, who the US government says was Chicago-based Jeremy Hammond, obtained a complete roster of all corporate client accounts. These were released online in a massive file called stratfor_users.csv. Inside that file appear the details for one paulabroadwell@yahoo.com, whose hashed password is listed as "deb2f7d6542130f7a1e90cf5ec607ad1."

It's not clear whether the leak was meaningful—Broadwell's Stratfor password and her actual Yahoo e-mail password might have differed—but the prevalence of password reuse raises the possibility that hackers could have accessed her Yahoo e-mail or perhaps even the Gmail account she allegedly used to correspond with Petraeus.

The buildup of forces in Afghanistan is complete, with the number of US troops there the highest yet. The surge is part of President Obama’s campaign to take the battle to the Taliban strongholds in the south and east, while accelerating training of Afghan security forces. In February, suicide attacks by militants increased, and villagers and Afghan officials accused NATO of killing a large number of civilians in airstrikes. The images in this month's post show Afghans and NATO-led soldiers working and living through moments of sheer terror and numbing poverty. Through the strife, we see glimpses of the enduring human spirit. --Leanne Burden Seidel (39 photos total)
