Behind the scenes reactions from U.S. officials to September 11th terror attacks: PHOTOS


Prompted by a Freedom of Information request, the U.S. National Archive has recently released photos showing the reactions from U.S. leaders to the September 11th, 2001, terror attacks in New York City and Washington D.C.

Viewers can see how then President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, General Colin Powell, and other members of the Cabinet were reacting to the news that came in and the images they saw on television.

The photos show behind the scenes of one of the darker moments in U.S. history, and are well worth your time.
