A growing database of US State Department cables (and other items) from places I have served. To increase public awareness of how diplomacy is (was) actually done. All cable posts cleared through the USG FOIA procedure.
Most postings will be cables sent under my name from my posts but also others I was directly involved in. I'll also include occasional notes and background. Most recent in series on top.
* Note: This was the last substantive cable sent under my name and the last of the Brazil series of cable to be posted here. (I departed Brasilia on February 1, 2000.) f anything redacted in this series strikes interest, you can always do a FOIA request of your own.
