Iraqi Rosters In 2002 Show Interesting Department Names

The latest document release from the captured IIS files, this time with full translations, show some interesting behind-the-scenes nomenclature in the Iraqi government. For instance, Project Harmony document BIAP-2003-002728.pdf is a roster of night workers that got transmitted to the IIS Finance Department — and some of the assignments appear to indicate ongoing WMD programs in Iraq:

Among the rather banal departments, such as Notary, Computer, and Communication, we also see Nuclear, Biology, and Chemical. Power Line notes the same issue in another memo detailing end-of-year bonuses. In these three categories, 30 people received bonuses. One has to wonder why they worked three shifts and paid bonuses for programs that people still insist did not exist.
