From bin Laden’s ‘Instructions to Applicants': Do you wish to execute a suicide operation?

One of the documents found in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan was titled “Instructions to Applicant.” This and other documents were declassified and released Wednesday by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

The documents include letters, religious texts, software manuals and books, including ones by Noam Chomsky and Bob Woodward.

It doesn’t say what people would be applying for, but a note says that on the original, there was a watermark on each page reading: “The Security Committee — al-Qa’ida Organization” “O ye people of faith, be vigilant.”

It asks that the person who fills it out write clearly and legibly. If the applicant has questions, it instructs him to “please tell [his] direct brother supervisor.”

It asks about what languages the applicant reads, writes and speaks, and whether he has any hobbies or pasttimes.

Among the other questions, as written on the document:

How long do you plan to stay in the (jihadi) theater?

What is your favorite material: science or literature?

Do you know any workers or experts in chemistry, communications, or any other fields?

List the types of passports you possess. Did you use a real or forged passport for your current travel?

Do you wish to execute a suicide operation?

Who should we contact in case you become a martyr?
