Former US vice president Dick Cheney wrote, in his soon to be released autobiography, that he advised former US president George W. Bush to bomb Syria's secret nuclear facility in 2007, The New York Times published on Thursday.

Israel was suspected to have bombed Syria's alleged nuclear facility near Deir al-Zor in September 2007.

Cheney's memoir, In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir was slated for release by Simon and Schuster on August 30, 2011.
