DOS Cable re: Referral Status on Guantanamo Detainees

This State Department cable is discussing the transferring out of Guantanamo certain detainees. The cable states that there is an opportunity to "air bridge" them out in September 2003. There is also a mention of an un-named detainee who refuses to cooperate with any questioning as to his nationality or with representatives of the country he is believed to be from. As a result, there is "limited information on him".
