I don't remember that story. Would you happen to have a link to it?
You are correct, an interesting view, that makes sense to me.

April 26, 2004 - Jordanian authorities said Monday they have broken up an alleged al Qaeda plot that would have unleashed a deadly cloud of chemicals in the heart of Jordan's capital, Amman.
In a series of raids, the Jordanians said, they seized 20 tons of chemicals and numerous explosives.
Other news stories at the time said the 20 tons (40,000 pounds) of chemicals were mostly Sarin and VX nerve agent. These chemical weapons were brought to Jordan by al Qaeda from Syria. But Syria doesn't have the technology to make VX. Iraq had a history of making VX, though.
There were other news stories at the time with more details than the CNN story. But the media didn't seem very interested and never followed up on where these terrorists managed to find 40,000 pounds of chemical weapons. I guess they thought these guys ran down to the local "chemical weapons-R-Us" store and got them there.
