    Nothing like telling your enemies what you are about to do.

    Sometimes that is called "messaging" - your intent may be to bluff, but if the enemy doesn't know that it may deter or influence his actions. It is not unlike basic deterrence theory but has more variables.

    That is unless some "whistle-blower" decides it is his business to steal classified documents so that you have no leverage errr...I mean can wrong rights...errr...I mean right wrongs.

    Exactly.
    This has been used for many years to let the opponents know whats coming if they don't get their STG.
