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 WELCOMES PM VISIT TO DISCUSS END USE ISSUES 
 
REF: A. CAIRO 1114 
     ΒΆB. CAIRO 478 
     C.CAIRO 458 Classified By: Ambassador Margaret Scobey per 1.4 (b) and (d). (C) Egyptian Assistant Minister of Defense Major General Mohamed Al-Assar told OMC Chief Major General Williams on July 2 that Egypt welcomes a visit by a team from PM to discuss end-use and other issues. We understand that this acceptance will allow PM to lift current holds on M1A1 production and Congressional notification re F-16s. Al Assar noted that due to the long-scheduled visit to Washington of the MOD "White Paper" team, the proposed late July timing for the PM team's visit will not work, and suggested a timeframe in early August instead.
