Decode the Cairo Cables

This week, Wikileaks released a new batch of U.S. diplomatic cables, the latest in a collection of classified documents released by the whistleblower site in recent weeks.

The documents provide a look into U.S. attempts to pressure Egypt to improve its human rights record and to determine what kind of government could follow the end of President Hosni Mubarak's tenure. WikiLeaks has redacted some of the cables, principally to remove the names of those who provided information to U.S. officials. These deletions are marked by XXXX; the Washington Post has made additional redactions, also to protect the identities of sources.

We invite readers to scrutinize these documents, and propose annotations to some or all of them by entering observations and questions in the form below.
