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.
