1. EMBASSY WOULD LIKE TO BE INFORMED AS TO WHY “IMMEDIATE NIACT” PRECEDENCE WAS ASSIGNED TO REFTEL. SUBSTANCE OF CABLE DOES NOT MERIT RECALLING A COMMUNICATOR AND DUTY OFFICER TO THE CHANCERY AT 10:48 P.M. TO SERVICE AND READ IT. THERE WAS NO POSSIBLE ACTION WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN AT THAT HOUR. CABLE WARRANTS AT THE MOST ROUTINE HANDLING.

2. EMBASSY ALSO QUESTIONS USE OF CONFIDENTIAL CLASSIFICATION ON REFTEL. LIMITED OFFICIAL USE WOULD HAVE PROVIDED ADEQUATE PROTECTION AND CONTROL.
