Syria Used Chemical Weapons? 

Interesting development in Sudan. Let's follow how this story develops.

Syrian special forces used chemical weapons in June to kill dozens of people in Darfur, Sudan, the German newspaper Die Welt reported.

The attack came after an arrangement between Syria and the Sudanese government, Die Welt said, citing Western secret service documents and eyewitnesses as quoted in the Arab media.....

A second plan -- the one that was eventually carried out -- called for testing the weapons on black African residents of the war-torn Darfur region.

At least five planes from the Syrian civil airline Syrian Arab Airlines flew Syrian chemical weapons experts into Sudan to carry out the attack.

If Syria did use chemical weapons in Sudan, were they originally Iraq's chemical weapons? Why is Syria testing them, so they can be used to defend against against a U.S. invasion?
