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.

Discussing cables
If you find meaningful or important information in a cable, please link directly to its unique reference number.

1. (SBU) Emboffs delivered points contained in reftel to Greta 
Gunnarsdottir, head of the International and Security Affairs 
Directorate at the Icelandic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on August 
5.  Gunnarsdottir thanked Emboffs for the information and responded 
that the GOI intends to maintain its current level of support for 
the mission in Afghanistan. 
 
2. (SBU) Gunnarsdottir said that, due to the difficult economic 
situation in Iceland, the GOI is cutting back on many of its global 
peace keeping projects.  She offered assurances, however, that 
Afghanistan would remain a top priority for the Icelandic 
Government.  She also suggested that the seven or eight Icelanders 
who are currently serving in Afghanistan would remain in their 
positions for the foreseeable future.
