To be fair, only those who have been given the binary are entitled to ask for the source. Any recipient of the source is welcome to release it for wider distribution for whatever cost they would like. Its not required to be provided to the general public, unless you are also distributing the binary to them.

But trying to keep GPL'd code secret is crazy. It is not a good sign that it is not generally available.
