Cheney says he urged Bush to bomb Syria

Dick Cheney said he urged then-president George W. Bush in June 2007 to bomb a suspected nuclear reactor site in Syria, the former vice president wrote in his memoirs, the New York Times reported Thursday. “I again made the case for US military action against the reactor,” Cheney wrote about a meeting on the issue according to the newspaper, which received an advance copy of the book. “But I was a lone voice. After I finished, the president asked, ‘Does anyone here agree with the vice president?’ Not a single hand went up around the room,” he wrote.
