Can the US keep a secret?

We have insurrections in Ukraine and Venezuela which are on our side.  We ought to be supporting them.  We can furnish money, intelligence, internet access, paperwork (passports and such), favorable publicity, and drone strikes.  And other things.
   Trouble is, support like this has to be kept secret.  Otherwise our supporters get called American stooges and worse.  The insurrections have to be seen as legitimate native uprisings by the opponents, the natives, the EU, and just about everyone in the world, otherwise they loose legitimacy.  Can the US keep support a secret?  Can the US keep anything a secret? We had US assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, blow her cover over the phone just a couple of weeks ago.   For that matter will Obama see these insurrections as something he should support?  He was stupid enough to cold shoulder an Iranian insurgency a couple of years ago. 
   For that matter would insurgents dare talk to US agents?  After CIA has leaked all sorts of stuff to the NY Times?  Some years ago we were intercepting Bin Ladin's satellite phone conversations.  CIA leaked that, and Bin Laden scrapped the sat phone and went back to couriers.  Every one remembers that one.

US diplomat can't tell friends from enemies

F**k the EU.   This from a senior US diplomat, Victoria Nuland, an assistant secretary of state no less.  I suppose Hillary hired her.  With a klutz like this in a senior position in the State Dept no wonder America has been loosing out abroad.  Victoria doesn't know that the Europeans are friends and allies, unlike say Iran, China, Russia, and the Norks.   Telling friends and allies to f**k themselves turns friends into enemies pretty quickly.  That Hillary would tolerate an idiot like this at the top of the state dept is nearly as bad a scandal as Benghasi.
   In addition to having destructive attitudes toward allies, Victoria has a brain made of solid concrete.  Everyone knows that the Russians have been tapping US embassy phones since Lenin's day.  To badmouth our allies and then discuss a new Ukrainian government over a phone everyone knows the Russians have tapped, is beyond stupid. 
   Betcha she keeps her job.
