According to a pair of studies by West Point researchers, Al Qaeda is internally run much like your average corporation, complete with benefits packages:
Indeed, some of the documents used by researchers indicate that al Qaeda has vacation plans -- seven days every three weeks for married members, five days a month for bachelors -- and provides its members with 15 days of sick leave a year.
Lest you think the pressure of competing against the many governments trying to put them out of business might cause them to operate more efficiently, annoying bureaucracy persists:
One document states that al Qaeda operatives must request vacation 10 weeks in advance, and another document outlines the pay scale for members: about $108 a month for married members, less if they're single and more if they have more than one wife.
