Prosecutors release Padilla's purported al-Qaida application

The application to join an &to=http://english.pravda.ru/main/2003/01/25/42553.html' target=_blank>al-Qaida training camp in Afghanistan purportedly filled out by alleged terror operative Jose Padilla was released Friday by federal prosecutors, one day after defense lawyers questioned its authenticity.

The "Mujahideen Data Form," which begins with the salutation "Brother Mujahid," bears the signature of Abu Abdallah al Muhajir, which the FBI says is the Muslim name that Padilla adopted after he converted to Islam. He was also known as Abu Abdullah the Puerto Rican.
