Coup manager Victoria Nuland gone from US State Department
Tuesday, 24 January 2017

As President  Donald Trump took office Friday, a number of senior Obama administration officials have been asked to stay to aid the transition. At least three of these top officials, however, have decided to leave despite the offer, Reuters reported Thursday.

A senior intelligence officer and two diplomats, whose names figured on the list of “requested political holdovers,” will be leaving their posts. They are: Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence Stephanie O'Sullivan, Under Secretary of State Catherine Novelli and Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland. Over 50 of Obama’s officials have been asked to stay to “ensure the continuity of government.”

According to the Reuters report, the two diplomats — Novelli and Nuland — have told their co-workers that they will leave while O’Sullivan will continue with her plan to retire.

However, a U.S. official disputed the Reuters story as 'false', and reportedly said that Nuland was never asked to stay, adding her duties ended on January 19th. Reuters was unclear whether the list with O'Sullivan, Nuland and Novelli’s names was the same as the list of officials the incoming administration wants to stay on.

Victoria Nuland will be remembered for being behind at least a dozen coups around the world, with the most famous being of course in Ukraine.

She is also responsible for the fiasco in Lybia, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, the very successful coups in Bulgaria where a new Government was installed three times in fourteen months, and is behind the unsuccessful coups in Hungary and Macedonia to name just a few.
