U.S. intelligence officials have released more than 100 documents seized in the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound, including a loving letter to his wife and a job application for his terrorist network.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence says the papers were taken in the Navy SEALs raid that killed bin Laden in Pakistan in 2011.

One of the documents, translated by intelligence officials, begins with questions similar to a conventional job application: "Do you have hobbies? Have you been convicted of a crime?" But it veers into more chilling territory, asking: "What objectives would you like to accomplish on your jihad path?"

It then asks: "Do you wish to execute a suicide operation?"

The document ends with: "Who should we contact in case you become a martyr?"
