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.

ΒΆ1. (C) On July 19, we delivered reftel demarche to Deputy Assistant Foreign Minister and Coordinator for Counterterrorism Ashraf Mohsen. Mohsen was not familiar with the Regional Biometrics Partnership Conference and said the MFA had not received a conference invitation. He suggested that the invitation may have been sent to Egypt's Ministry of Justice or Interior. Mohsen asked that we follow-up with the Jordanian Government. Based on the description of the conference we provided, Mohsen believes the GoE would be interested in attending. Tueller
