Dennis, List, All -

All we need to look to is the breaking of the Japanese codes
during the Second World War. Access was limited to just a few
people in very high places. When they learned that Yamamoto was
going to be flying close to the front lines during an inspection
tour, they had to decide whether it was worth the risk to attack
his plane and risk the compromise of "Magic" (the code name for
the Japanese intercepts and not to be confused with "Majic") or
let the airplane go. The decision had to be made in the White
House with those flying the mission never knowing how it was
discovered.

In the Southwest Pacific, commanded by MacArthur, only he and
his chief of intelligence, Brigadier General Charles A.
Willoughby (See the Combined Fleet Decoded by John Prados)  knew
about the existence of Magic, which means it was a closely held,
closely guarded, compartmentalized secret.

Given that Magic developed before the war began, and worked
through the war, we know that this sort of secret (or top secret
for those who like to split hairs) was compartmentalized even if
it wasn't called by that name.

What this demonstrates is that there are secrets and then there
are secrets and some are closely held and kept and others are
widely held and leak. One of the great fears was that the
Japanese would learn that we could read many of their coded
messages and change the codes. The ability to read their codes
lead directly to the victory at Midway, which provides some
perspective as to its importance.
