A thread of mine on this is here: Addressing the JFK “Secret Society” Speech...
A snippet of his speech:
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.
He was asking the press for secrecy and to treat the situation as if it was a real war in how the press - the name of the speech is the president and the press btw, look it up - print their stories so that incidents like the bay of pigs, which failed 10 days before remember, don't happen again.
Sorry, nothing to do with secret societies. If it was I'd be shouting about it, obviously. But, it just isn't here. Facts are facts..
Edit to add: You've also posted an edited version of the speech. Here's the full one:
