Unless you've got the packets (pcap or unified) you're out of luck.  You
need to have the packets in a binary format so that you can use Snort to
'post-process' the data.  You need to configure Snort to use Barnyard or
the DB outuput plugin in snort.conf.  Then you'd do something like:

	snort -c /etc/snort.conf -r <pcap file>

And you should be good to go!
