Ah Ha, you are doing this wrong, you should have something like 

/usr/local/bin/snort -d -D -Q -c /etc/snort/snort.conf

Notice I didn't specify an interface, because it is not needed.  I
instead told snort we are going to read packets from ip_queue.

So we then send packets snort by having an iptables rule like the following.

iptables -A FORWARD -j QUEUE
