Osama Bin Laden, director of human resources

Image taken May 19, 2015 in Washington, shows an English version of Al-Qaeda's recruitment form translated by the CIA and provided to AFPDo you wish to execute a suicide operation?” Al-Qaeda’s application form starts like that of any large enterprise, but leads recruits quickly to a darker place: “Who should we contact in case you become a martyr?” Recruiting a global jihadist network is a tricky job, especially if — like the late Osama Bin Laden — you are holed up in a Pakistani compound sheltering from US drones. The document was among intelligence materials seized by US commandos on May 2, 2011 after they stormed Bin Laden’s hideout in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad and shot him dead. US intelligence agencies declassified the Al-Qaeda recruitment form and around 100 other documents from Bin Laden’s archive on Wednesday, allowing an insight into his thinking in his final years.
