Viewing cable 08LAPAZ2037, BOLIVIA: REQUEST USG VISITORS POSTPONE TRAVEL

If you are new to these pages, please read an introduction on the structure of a cable as well as how to discuss them with others. See also the FAQs

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.

Classified By: A/DCM Mike Hammer for reasons 1.4 (b)(d)  1. (C) Embassy La Paz went to country-wide authorized departure on September 12 (reftels) due to escalating violence in the eastern departments of Bolivia (Media Luna), severe transportation restrictions/closed airports, the potential for demonstrations/attacks aimed at U.S. Mission buildings and personnel, fuel and food scarcities in the east and the potential for the same in La Paz, and the potential impact of deteriorating bilateral relations on the security of mission personnel.  The Embassy is approving country clearance requests for TDY travel to Bolivia on a case-by-case basis, approving only what is deemed essential. The Embassy asks USG personnel planning travel to or through Bolivia to please postpone trips at least until the end of the minimum period of authorized departure, October 12, and to reassess travel plans after October 13.  2. (C) The political situation in Bolivia remains fluid and unpredictable.  Post suggests USG personnel planning to travel to Bolivia check with the Bolivian Desk Officer or the Embassy's Web site and Department of State travel advisories before making plans or requesting country clearances.  The potential for political violence and unrest could continue for an indefinite period. URS
