"We probably would have seen it"

Richard Boucher doubts reports that Syria has tested chemical weapons in the Sudan:

The United States expressed scepticism Wednesday over a report that Syria tested chemical weapons on civilians in Sudan's troubled western Darfur region, killing dozens of people.

"I think if that was true, we probably would have seen it," US State Department spokesman Richard Boucher told reporters.

"Something like transfer and use of chemical weapons would have set off alarm bells if we'd known about it," he said.
