    The problem with all the high tech "secret" technology is that it will fail, it will be shot down and it will eventually find its ways into our enemy's hands. IE: the F117 shot down in kosovo, the "stealth" helicopter crash in May the spy plane that was forced to land in china (the island off of china) a few years ago and now this. This equipment will fetch a LOT of money on the military tech scene. as an example the new soviet T-90 tank that is modeled after our M1A1 Abrams tank, the new soviet stealth fighter the Sukhoi T-50 and the MI-28 'Havoc' helicopter. These systems really need some kind of high tech self - destruct system built into them to make it very difficult for our adversaries to get any info off of the wreckage. I know that is probably some James Bond fantasy system but with all the minds that dream up this stuff, I'm sure they could make something like that work...
