    The US National Archive released never-before-seen images of Bush Administration officials meeting in a secret area of the White House after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

    New photographs released by the US National Archives revealed previously unseen reactions by US government officials to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon, and an attack which led one of the hijacked plane to crash in a field in Pennsylvania.

    The photographs were made in the Presidential Emergency Operations Center, an underground facility under the East Wing of the White House.

    The images were released following a Freedom of Information Act request for the photographs made by a documentary filmmaker.

    The photographs show Vice President Dick Cheney, President George W. Bush, National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice, and other senior Bush administration figures.
