That's not how it's done! The secret stuff stays secret until there is no other option than it being used publicly for a 'must do' mission.

Secret govt. money develops secret stuff - Public govt. money develops not so secret stuff.

The origin of $1,000 hammer stories is from the early days of spreading the secret costs across the entire expenditure then somebody actually giving a correct raw cost printout to legislators when asked.
