See Dick Cheney And The White House React To 9/11

Newly released pictures of the White House staff shows what went on behind closed doors on the day that changed history.

On September 11, 2001, the country was irreparably changed.

The terrorist attacks on that day killed more than 3,000 people and set in motion the course of events that would result in a war on terror that has left hundreds of thousands dead and still continues to this day.

Newly released photos from the U.S. National Archives show former Vice President Dick Cheney, senior White House staff and the president himself on the fateful day.
