Sure. But you missed an important point.
If you can't be trusted to keep your damned yap shut about the fact that you applied for a job there because you think you understand the "need" for secrecy better than the MI5 guys who have been doing it for 3 or 4 times as long as you've been *alive*, why should they trust you to keep your yap shut when you get access to something actually sensitive?
