A growing database of US State Department cables (and other items) from places I have served. To increase public awareness of how diplomacy is actually done. All cable posts cleared through the USG FOIA procedure.
Most postings will be cables sent under my name from my posts but eventually also others I was directly involved in. I'll also include occasional notes and background. Oldest cables at the bottom.

*Note: This was a yearly ritual of informing Washington of who would be in New York for the September opening session of the UN General Assembly and what meetings the foreign government officials might be requesting. This was to aid in scheduling.
