An Al Qaeda Job Application Form, Translated By U.S. Intelligence


Ever wonder what it takes to get a job with Al Qaeda?

If you have, the RCMP might want a word with you.

But before you head for the airport to dodge police officers trying to stop you from boarding a flight to the Middle East, take a moment to familiarize yourself with what Al Qaeda looks for in a candidate.

The document was released last week as part of the data dump from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence of materials found in Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound.

Each page of the original document (photo above) featured the Al Qaeda watermark and the words “The Security Committee, al Qaeda Organization," as well as a motto: “O ye people of faith, be vigilant.”

The form first asks for the applicant’s vital stats, including any nicknames and “father’s occupation.” It asks for your educational attainment and follows up with the question, “When did Allah bless you with this gift?” Clearly, Al Qaeda has never heard of student loans.

Among other questions asked:

  • How much of the holy Qur’an have you memorized? Did you study Sharia? Who was your instructor?
  • What is your favorite material: science or literature?
  • Do you know any workers or experts in chemistry, communications, or any other field?
  • Do any of your family or friends work with the government? If so, would he/she be willing to cooperate with or help us?
  • How many trips have you taken to Pakistan and for what reason(s)?

Check out the entire translated document below. The entire original Arabic document can be found here.
