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: UK RESPONSE TO ADDITION OF TWO NEW PARTNERS TO 
GLOBAL INITIATIVE TO COMBAT NUCLEAR TERRORISM  

REF: SECSTATE 80436  

Classified By: Political Counselor Richard M. Mills, Jr. for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d)  (C) Adding new partners to the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism (GI) is a positive development that could permit increased regional focus by GI members, Sharon McDonald, Desk Officer in the Counterproliferation Department at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, told us July 28 in response to reftel demarche regarding the addition of Mauritius and Uzbekistan as GI partners. McDonald emphasized the importance of regionally-focused efforts to combat nuclear terrorism, but also cautioned that a potential downside to increasing the number of partners is unwieldy plenary meetings.  Nonetheless, she continued, regional efforts are crucial and adding new members creates more opportunities for better regional cooperation.  Visit London's Classified Website: XXXXXXXXXXXXTUTTLE
