Al Qaeda Job Postings (Apparently, Recruiting Efforts Are Less Than Hoped)

DUBAI (Reuters) - Al Qaeda has put job advertisements on the Internet asking for supporters to help put together its Web statements and video montages, an Arabic newspaper reported. The London-based Asharq al-Awsat said on its Web site this week that al Qaeda had "vacant positions" for video production and editing statements, footage and international media coverage about militants in Iraq, the Palestinian territories, Chechnya and other conflict zones where militants are active.

In an "The Middle of America" exclusive, we have obtained a copy of the ad:

Web Marketing HELP WANTED: Must be energetic, fun loving, and a quick thinker. Previous Web Marketing experience a plus. Fanatical belief in strict sect of Islam required. Must be willing to relocate, and die in martyrdom. Rooms for advancement as superiors expire often. Please apply in person anywhere in Iraq, near the Syrian border.

Does this mean that their recruiting isn’t as good as reported?
