I'll Be Out of the Cave Until...

Dan Drezner posts a long excerpt from a Newsweek story about the problems Al Qaeda has faced in becoming a large organization. It's very interesting, but the final line is great:

"When they were in Afghanistan, al Qaeda really prided itself on its H.R.," says Hoffman. "It gave people annual leave and even a death benefits plan."

Yeah, but what they don't tell you is that you don't get death benefit until your one year probationary period is over and the strategic plan calls for new recruits to be sent on their first "assignment" within 6 months.
