Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:
  • The top box shows each cables unique reference number, when and by whom it originally was sent, and what its initial classification was.
  • The middle box contains the header information that is associated with the cable. It includes information about the receiver(s) as well as a general subject.
  • The bottom box presents the body of the cable. The opening can contain a more specific subject, references to other cables (browse by origin to find them) or additional comment. This is followed by the main contents of the cable: a summary, a collection of specific topics and a comment section.
To understand the justification used for the classification of each cable, please use this WikiSource article as reference.

1. (U) THIS CABLE IS SENSITIVE BUT UNCLASSIFIED AND NOT FOR INTERNET DISTRIBUTION. 

2. (SBU) On February 27, 2008, Environment, Science, Technology and Health (ESTH) Counselor met with the Deputy Director of the Ministry of External Relations' Department of Disarmament and Sensitive Technologies, Counselor Luiz Fernando Abbott Galvao, to discuss, among other things, export denials to Iran by Brazil. Per REFTEL A, ESTH Counselor provided Galvao with a copy of the request for information about export denials from International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Deputy Director General for Safeguards Olli Heinonen. 

3. (SBU) Galvao said that Iran had not requested any exports of nuclear related items from Brazil and so there were no export requests to be denied. Although Galvao shared this information with Post, he was non-commital about formally responding to Heinonen's request.
