Great Moments in Terrorist Bureaucracy

It used to be said that there are no secrets in a place with photocopiers.  Also true for USB drives.  Britain's Sky News reports:
Thousands of documents detailing phone numbers and family contacts are handed to Sky News by a disillusioned convert to the group.
Tens of thousands of documents, containing 22,000 names, addresses, telephone numbers and family contacts of Islamic State jihadis, have been obtained by Sky News.

Nationals from at least 51 countries, including the UK, had to give up their most personal information as they joined the terror organisation. Only when the 23 question form was filled in were they inducted into IS.

A lot of the names and their new Islamic State names on the registration forms are well known.
Abdel Bary, a 26-year-old from London joined in 2013 after visiting Libya, Egypt and Turkey. He is designated as a fighter but is better known in the UK as a rap artist. His whereabouts are unknown.
How could someone be disillusioned?  Not enough children to rape?  Not enough heads to cut off screaming victims?
