Photos taken in the White House during the aftermath of the attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11 have been released by the National Archives following a Freedom of Information Act request made by FRONTLINE filmmaker Colette Neirouz Hanna.

According to the Daily Mail, the newly-released images of former President George Bush and then-Vice President Dick Cheney, as well as other officials' reactions to 9/11, were captured by Cheny's staff photographer.

The never-before-seen images captured Cheney's reaction to the attacks, which saw two hijacked passenger planes crash into the World Trade Center in New York, another jet strike the Pentagon and a fourth crash in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001, killing 2,996 people.

They also show the crisis talks held by other senior government officials, including Bush, his wife Laura, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, CIA Director George Tenet, Cheney's top lawyer, David Addington, and Chief of Staff Andrew Card.

I saw these a little earlier on this morning.

They really do put forth the severity and devastation of the situation, especially the one with Powell with his head in his hand.

@Susimi I had the opposite reaction. What I saw when I looked was: they don't look panicked at all. Not a single tear. Dick even had his foot up on the desk, kicked back, calm. They looked like they were discussing something as important as their lunch menu.

I was pretty surprised by the pic of Cheney with his feet up too! I can remember watching the reports and being sat bolt upright on the edge of my seat and I'm in a different country so it's hard to understand how he can seem so casual.

The body language shown in other pics is interesting too and my imagination is working overtime imagining what everyone must have been saying to each other.

Look at Cheney with his foot on the desk. He looks like he's taking a load off while the country is now at war. Cool, calm, and collective. "Look at the cool puff of dust that's popping up".

Oh, why do threads like this start? They just get me riled up, and make me go to places that I don't want to. So, for the sake of peace in the forum, and not getting flamed, I'm not going to say a thing. Not a thing. COUGH
