Following are excerpts from the confession of Saudi terrorist Muhammad Al-Shimari, which aired on Al-Iraqiya TV on August 31, 2009.
Muhammad Al-Shimari: I arrived in Syria using an official Saudi passport. I went to Bahrain, then to the UAE, and from there, to Syria. In Syria, I was met by a man called Abu Maridh. He took me to the Al-Latakiyah camp. There it became evident to me that the man in charge of this camp, who came to conduct the training, was a man called Abu Al-Qa'qa', who was a Syrian intelligence officer.
