Interesting read about the history though.
And why can't it be mentioned? Like a theater to show hollywood movies has anything to do with national security. This is just another example of our "national security state" (where anything and everything can be classified a state secret at the whim of some functionary).
In the meantime, no one dares question the absurdity of such classifications, due to fear of being labeled weak on security and terrorism issues. This has been ongoing since the cold war, and only got worse after 9/11.
Probably 99% of what is deemed "classified" would do no harm if known.
