    if I got lucky.  Seriously, though, of course they let everyone know about it.  It wouldn't be a show of force and a chest-beating moment of machismo if it was secret, now would it?  The reason for the mission was political, not strategic.  Also, I hope everyone realizes that the bombers did not fly over North Korean territory.  They took off from Missouri, flew to SK, dropped practice bombs on a practice range as per plans for the annual wargames, and flew back to Missouri.  No violation of airspace, no direct provocation... just a reminder to the North that we can hit them, and they can't hit us.
