What Happened To Zuma?

Last Sunday there was a report that after many delays, the top secret, hush hush Zuma mission had been launched into space with a payload so important that the launch could only be performed under perfect conditions.
Within hours it was being reported that the wait was all for nothing as whatever was being dragged upwards by the SpaceX, Falcon 9 rocket, it was now shooting back downwards again and ended up at the bottom of the Indian Ocean. 
The whispers were that it was a military satellite of some description which nobody would confirm or deny but the SpaceX President and CEO Gwynne Shotwell explained that after reviewing all the data, the problem was not their rocket.
The Pentagon straight-batted any questions by answering that as it was a SpaceX mission and they  conducted the launch, they should be asked what went wrong.
That their multi-billion dollar piece of military equipment is now a nice new home to sealife is excepted but call me cynical but maybe that's what they want us to believe.
We don't know what it was that they was attempting to put in orbit but if is it a spy satellite, saying 'oh dear it never worked' is the perfect response because by it's nature of being something to spy with, you don't want your enemies to know you are spying on them.
Either it is in the Ocean slowly rusting like they want us to believe or it's orbiting above our heads spying on whoever it was designed to spy on like they don't want us to believe.

so, how do you know its purpose is to spy?

do you have inside info?
or do you just lack the imagination to come up with other alternatives?

I don't know hence the bit where i said: 'We don't know what it was that they was attempting to put in orbit but if is it a spy satellite...'

Big clue there that i was guessing for anyone who read it properly.

The 'We don't know what it was that they was attempting to put in orbit but if is it a spy satellite...' was not a big enough clue that i didn't know what it was for obviously.
