What is secret anymore?

I thought of the lyrics from the Beatles song, "A Day in the Life", as I read about a USAF satellite launched from Cape Canaveral recently:

"I read the news today, oh boy..."

Why did I flashback to those particular lyrics?

"...And though the news was rather sad; Well I just had to laugh; I saw the photograph..."

Don't know what you think about after reading the headline/article. But for me, I wonder, what qualifies as secret anymore? What exactly does secret mean? Come on! The USAF launches the "largest satellite in the world", described as, "a classified, electronic eavesdropping satellite"; so why are we broadcasting the launch to the world? Why call it secret if you are going to tell the world about it?
The word "secret" is like the word "crisis", meaningless! Let's start searching for new superlatives in Webster's online dictionary, as these words are now flaccid.

" they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall, ...I'd love to turn you on."
