The first droppings of paratroopers in over sixty years (allegedly) by the Dutch airforce was kept secret for more than a year, for reasons not specified. Of course, the ever embedded Dutch press did not know anything about it either.
And the christian-democratic government of the Netherlands apparently also had its share of drone warfare with payed help form A Very Good Friend State:
Afghanistan has forced a number of participating countries to upgrade their UAV fleets through purchase and rental, and Dutch forces are no exception. They have bought Aladin and Raven mini-UAVs, and a recent announcement indicates that they’re about to retire their old, limited Sperwer-A UAVs as of March 1/09. Instead of buying replacements, they will join the rent-a-UAV trend.
