I'm currently reading Dark Lord by Luceno, and he mentions Armand Isard as the chief of the Internal Security Bureau (p 164 of paperback). There are two obvious problems with this in my mind:
1) Armand Isard is chief of Imperial Intelligence
2) There is no Internal Security Bureau - only the Imperial Security Bureau, which Isard was certainly not affiliated with.
What's the consensus on this? Is Internal Security Bureau yet another sub-branch of ImpIntel? Or did Luceno just completly confuse the established canon there?
Biiig time mistake by Luceno on my opinion. I have never heard of the "Internal Security Bureau". And it is not listed on the Imperial Sourcebook which has all of the divisions of Intel. Carlitos Moff 22:20, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
Interesting. I must admit that even though, I am not able to find such organization on the copy of the book I have, the version I have is in Spanish. So I may be loosing something in the translation. I shall refrain from further comments on this matter since I can't be certain of this. Carlitos Moff 01:20, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

That was an obscure find LtNOWIS, thanks. And yes, this is in the English version paperback. Noticing the reference to the Imperial Sourcebook on the CUSWE page, I dug out my copy and the only plausible reference I find is under Imperial Intelligence (p26) that details the Internal Security Branch. I'm thinking that Luceno probably meant to reference a sub-section of Intelligence since he used Isard as chief, but he should have called this IntSec instead of referring to the ISB, which is clearly an entirely different organization and subset of COMPNOR based on the information collected here at wookieepedia.--Waivren 02:00, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
This one is probably the one. It's funny... on the Spanish version of the Imperial Sourcebook they named this "Departamento de Organizacion Interna" which translated directly to "Internal Organization Department". The strange thing is that in Spanish we DO have a word for "Bureau"... which is "Buró". I wonder why they didn't use that. Carlitos Moff 02:49, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
