Here Is an Actual Job Application for Al-Qaeda… And It’s Every Bit As Crazy As You’d Imagine

By on Thursday, May 21, 2015

 The U.S. government has just declassified many documents, some of which were found at Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound during the 2012 raid that ended in the terror leader’s death.
Proving that bureaucracy exists in all walks of life, one of these declassified documents is a job application for the al-Qaeda terror network.
You read that right.
It’s filled with all manner of ridiculous phrasings.
The highlight text reads:

“Who should we contact in case you became a martyr?”

There are also questions about the applicant’s willingness to conduct a suicide bombing and more banal inquiries into job experience and possible health conditions.
 It’s a fascinating, and bizarre, look into the daily workings of the terror organization.
Some of the questions include:
  • Have you ever joined the Afghanistan theater? If so, which year and which group?
  • Did you encounter any difficulties on the road to this place?
  • What objectives would you like to accomplish on your jihad path?
In addition to the job application, bin Laden’s compound was also filled with issues of popular video game magazine GamePro and assorted tech manuals for computer software such as Adobe Acrobat and Photoshop.
You can’t make this stuff up.
