The released cables include requests for, and reports on, a range of subjects, from crop forecasts to military hardware purchases to social commentary, but put a particular focus on the activities of important figures.

"The intelligence community relies on State reporting officers for much of the biographical information collected worldwide," say several of the cables. "Informal biographic reporting via e-mail and other means is vital to the community’s collection efforts."

Information requested includes organisation names and position titles, other details from business cards, e-mail addresses, websites URLs, credit card numbers, frequent flyer account details and work schedules.
