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: DEMARCHE DELIVERED: CONSTRUCTIVE OUTCOME FROM THE GOLDSTONE REPORT REF: STATE 98567 Classified By: Economic-Political Minister-Counselor Donald A. Blome for reason 1.4 (b).
1.(C) On September 23, Economic-Political Minister-Counselor delivered reftel points on the Goldstone Report to MFA Deputy Assistant Minister for Human Rights Wael Aboulmagd, and separately to MFA Deputy Assistant Minister for the Americas Amin Meleka. Regarding USG principles for a balanced UN Human Rights Council (HRC) resolution (reftel), Aboulmagd identified three elements that he anticipated would be problematic for the GOE: noting the report without endorsing it, the definition of a "balanced" HRC resolution, and recognizing a state's right to legitimate self-defense.

2.(C) Aboulmagd explained that the GOE views the conflict as having been one-sided, so there would need to be discussions on what a balanced resolution would entail. He said the GOE is not certain that the issue of a state's legitimate self-defense is relevant to a HRC resolution. Aboulmagd noted that this was an initial response, and that the GOE is still studying the report. Scobey
