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.

A 12-year old Egyptian-American girl, who arrived on a May 31 direct flight from New York City with her mother, was stopped at the airport by MOH authorities who discovered she had a high fever. She was transferred to Cairo's Abbassia Hospital, where she remains in quarantine. Central Public Health Laboratory tests later confirmed the girl has the H1N1 virus. The girl is reported to be in good condition. Scobey
