SUBJECT: NATIONAL DAY MESSAGE FOR NICARAGUA: ORTEGA READS LIVE ON RADIO

REF: SECSTATE 90253

(U) The Ambassador delivered the text of the President
Obama's National Day Message contained in REFTEL to
Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, on September 2, 2009, at
the beginning of a previously-scheduled courtesy call between
Ortega and General Douglas Fraser, Commander of U.S. Southern
Command (Mtg reported SEPTEL). Ortega thanked the Ambassador
for the letter, then without warning opened it on the spot
and proceeded to read it aloud. The courtesy call was being
carried live by Sandinista Party-affiliated radio
broadcasters, so the National Day message was likely heard
throughout the country.
