Above is page one of a three-page application to Al Qaeda, one of several documents initially found in bin Laden's possession that were declassified and released Wednesday by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). The other documents released by the ODNI last week are several pieces of private correspondence between Osama bin Laden and his family. Those fascinating papers include letters to and from his daughters and a letter bin Laden wrote to his wife, which he calls his "will."
