Why Is Victoria Nuland Coming to Sri Lanka, Second Time in a Year?

She maybe the highest ranking American official but most Americans do not even know her name. However, she is visiting Sri Lanka twice in one year & that should mean something. Why is she visiting Sri Lanka is however more important. She first visited Sri Lanka days before riots started resulted in the resignation of the former President. Naturally, all eyes are fixed on what is likely to emerge after her forthcoming visit. Over the years, there is no doubt the US has created local “agents” covering all spectrums of society.

The clumsy tactic is an apparent attempt to divert attention from one’s responsibility for their perpetration.
