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.

SUBJECT: EGYPT NOTIFIED OF DEPARTMENT OF LABOR LIST OF 
GOODS PRODUCED BY CHILD LABOR REF: SECSTATE 92560 Classified By: Economic-Political Minister-Counselor Donald A. Blome for reason 1.4(d) (C) We delivered reftel demarche to Deputy Assistant Foreign Minister for Human Rights Wael Aboul Magd notifying the GoE that Egyptian cotton and quarried limestone will be included on the forthcoming list of goods produced with child labor. Aboul Magd said that he would pass the information to Egypt's Ministry of State for Family and Population, the ministry most directly involved in addressing child labor. Aboul Magd had no substantive response other that to say that the listing of cotton and limestone "will not be a surprise to anyone." We will report any response to the public release of the list separately. Scobey
