There is no classified data except for all this classified stuff

Hot Air: "Who’s up for another 150 Hillary e-mails containing classified information?"

Of all the excuses designed to insult the intelligence of an average American, the one that drives me bonkers is that "the information wasn't classified at the time but it was classified later."  All 150 emails in this latest release.

How often does it happen that information becomes classified after the fact?  That is, in what situation would the passage of time make information more secret?  Let's put it this way: I imagine that information on the D-Day landings were somewhat less important on June 7th, 1944.
