Cheney Advised Bush to Bomb Syria

From Voice of America:

Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, in a memoir obtained by the New York Times, says he urged former President George W. Bush to bomb a suspected Syrian nuclear reactor site in 2007.

The report says Cheney advised Bush to take "military action against the reactor," which was attacked by Israel a short time later. Cheney says his advice was turned down by the president and his advisers in favor of a diplomatic approach.

Wimps. I remember an Ace headline back in '05. The meme in the left wing news back then was about Iraq exit strategy. I must have heard "Bush has no exit strategy" 18 times a day for a while there. Then Ace contacted his sources in DC and wrote this headline: Bush Has Exit Strategy... For Syria. I read that and blew my beverage onto the computer screen. Anyway. Looks like Ace and Cheney were thinking along the same lines.

I think we should open this thread up to other unreported Cheney news.
