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.

REF: STATE 24355 CLASSIFIED BY: Gene Cretz, Ambassador. REASON: 1.4 (b), (d)

1.(C) Post delivered reftel points via diplomatic note on March 18. We will report any substantive response septel. On Central African Republic (CAR) rebel leader Abdoulaye Miskine's reported ties with the GOL, the French embassy here reports that Miskine has taken up residence at the GOL-owned Hotel Kabiir. CAR President Francois Bozize reportedly told the French Ambassador that he had raised the Miskine issue while travelling to Tripoli in December 2008. Apparently unaware that Miskine was in the country, Muammar al-Qadhafi reportedly offered to have him arrested and delivered to Bozize to take back to Bangui. Bozize declined, apparently due to concerns about how the international community would react. The French assess that al-Qadhafi is "annoyed and jealous" of Gabon's role in the peace process and sought a higher profile for al-Qadhafi as a possible joint mediator. CRETZ
