Secret War in Yemen

From the NY Times:

U.S. Is Intensifying a Secret Campaign of Yemen Airstrikes

The Obama administration has intensified the American covert war in Yemen, exploiting a growing power vacuum in the country to strike at militant suspects with armed drones and fighter jets, according to American officials.

How secret is it, exactly, if it's one the front page of the New York Times?

Somehow, it just feels wrong that the United States conducts wars in secret. Where's the accountability, then?
