Dick Cheney And Syria
August 25, 2011 by staff
Seeing the threat from Syria in 2007, Mr. Bush was still stung by “bad intelligence about Iraq had been stockpiled weapons of mass destruction” and other advisers who advised supported a diplomatic approach in place, according to a copy the book obtained by the “New York Times.”
“I again made the case for U.S. military action against the reactor,” Cheney wrote. “But it was a lone voice. After finishing, the President asked:” Does anyone here agree with the vice president? “Not a single hand went around the room.”
Bush tried to exert diplomatic pressure to force Syria to abandon its secret program, but the Israelis bombed the site in September 2007.
While Bush praised as “an exceptional leader,” Mr. Cheney, who was notoriously secret during his tenure, has revealed the number of divisions within the Bush inner circle of assistants.
