In one photo, then-Vice President Dick Cheney rests his feet on his desk as he watches a live TV news report of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
In another, he sits beside his wife after they were both frog-marched by Secret Service agents to a secure basement in the White House.
And in a later shot, he takes his glasses off and clasps his hands together before he and his spouse are flown to an undisclosed location.
These never-before-seen images capture 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 horror felt by other senior government officials, including then-President George Bush and his wife Laura, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, CIA Director George Tenet, Cheney’s top lawyer, David Addington, and Chief of Staff Andrew Card.

In the photos, Bush looks tense and even bites his lip as he confers with officials in the President’s Emergency Operations Center (PEOC), a highly-secure underground bunker below the White House’s East Wing that can withstand nuclear hits and other devastating attacks.
The then-President would shortly address the nation about the day’s atrocities, which were aired live on TV screens across the world.
The same evening, Cheney and his wife, Lynne, were flown via Marine Two to a secret destination, revealed in the photos to be Camp David.They were later moved to other undisclosed sites as thousands of rescue workers descended on the wreckage of the WTC towers.
On the day of the attacks, Cheney, now 74, was in charge at the White House, with Bush visiting a school in Sarasota, Florida, at the time.
Cheney has since defended the harsh interrogation techniques used by the CIA in the wake of the plane attacks, which included the waterboarding of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed a total of 183 times, declaring that he ‘would do it again in a minute’.
The newly-released images of Cheney and other officials’ reactions to 9/11 were captured by Cheny’s staff photographer, according to PBS.

The photos were released by the National Archives following a FOIA request by FRONTLINE filmmaker Colette Neirouz Hanna.

  1. A picture can tell a thousand words, especially the one of Dick Cheney sitting with his feet up calmly watching the North Tower being attacked…. and the caption underneath using words like “resting his feet” tries in vain to change what the picture has already told me – a calm, cold observer watching events play out on his TV screen.


  2. This has been all over the UK press. Those pictures of Cheney with his feet up on the desk, and the one showing him yawning say it all, and many of the comments draw the obvious inference – that this is hardly the demeanour of a man experiencing the greatest crisis of his life. One can’t help wondering if the journalists are using this as an opportunity to breach the taboo on objective and honest reporting of 911, letting the pictures tell their own story.
    Another news story that may help to shake the people’s faith in the legitimacy of their government is in a press release by the Citizens Electoral Council of Australia. While not directly concerned with 911, it does much to destroy the myth that there is decency at the top. Well worth reading.


    And this video on child molesting and coverup in very top of the British power structure should also make it easier for Joe Public to accept the truth of 911.


  3. This is what happened to a child abuse victim when she went against the police. A warning to whistleblowers everywhere – do not harass the establishment.
