Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:

  • 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.

Classified By: Polcouns Casey Christensen, reason 1.4 (b) and (d). 

1. (s) MFA Counterterrorism Coordinator Ambassador Cecilia Ruthstrom-Ruin told Polcouns June 8 that the GoS had reviewed our request to accept Uzbek nationals Yusupov and Samadov (refs A and B) and would not be able to accept them. There was no mechanism, she said, for doing so, and their resettlement in Sweden was "out of the question." She said the GoS could not take the decision as a government to accept resettlement cases. Applications when presented by individuals were reviewed by the Swedish Migration Board. The other mechanism for resettlement cases was through the UNHCR and subject to the quota system. Sweden had filled and its resettlement quota, and had in addition accepted a large number of refugees (note: including 7,000 Iraqis in 2006 and a projected 20,000 Iraqis in 2007). 

2. (s) Ruthstrom-Ruin said the response to the present request was based on the same principles and reached the same conclusion as our previous requests to Sweden to accept Guantanamo detainees. Ruthstrom-Ruin said "it is natural to wonder why, if these persons require monitoring or protective surveillance, they could not receive it where they were now located in the United States."
