In never-before-released photographs taken on Sept. 11, 2001, the shock, horror and gravity of the terrorist attacks can be read on the faces of President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, their wives Laura and Lynne, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, CIA Director George Tenet and other senior Bush and Cheney staffers.

The photos were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Colette Neirouz Hanna, coordinating producer for the Kirk Documentary Group, which covered the Bush administration in many films for FRONTLINE, including Bush’s War, Cheney’s Law and The Dark Side.


Just taking a look now.

Might be some interesting body language to interpret here. Or some interesting captions to write for the photos.

Historical significance any way you look at them.

Thank you for the post, S&F.

I cannot imagine what was going through their minds. They look grim, determined, and calm. Must have been some very long days for them.

No historical significance. No context to any of the pictures.

The motive and opportunity to create false narratives and mythology is obvious.

Well by looking at the expressions on their faces...they are.

1. Truly concerned

2. Actors worthy of an Emmy ( since they are supposedly behind it)

I know which one I believe it to be. And 2 isn't it.


Interesting pics that's for sure...

No context? I'm not sure I'm getting what you're saying.

I just got through a first pass studying them. A few seem a bit off to me...as in relaxed faces and smirks. But I'm sure I'm projecting a bit. Waiting to see what others think. Some people are very good at reading faces...even of practiced actors....er...politicians. Is there a difference?

I see quite a few smirks in those pics and not 1 tear.

Interesting just posting to see how this pans out. One quick question for what reason would be a photographer just be sitting in there with them. Surely at a time like they all types of recording must stop including photography

To me, it looks like Cheney is pissed off the plane that went down didn't make it's final destination (i.e., White House, Capital Building)

I'm trying to remember at what point they were all together finally, and at what point Cheney went to Camp David.

Might be time to dig out the old timelines....

Not that it would support either side of the story. A devil's advocate could just as easily insinuate that they were worried about getting caught out and the incoming public reaction.

So none see some of those expressions as guilt? the moving version of Bush being given the news is especially telling imo.

He looks guilty.

And another question I think trying to read their faces when you know the situation they are in could effect your judgement. For example someone against the official story could possibly look at the faces in a different way compared to someone who supports the official story.

To truely get a reading on the faces someone needs to see them without knowing the circumstances around them would they not ?

Although you see things that seem off...How do we know what the standard should be as this has never happened on US soil before.

Sometimes people will say something to help ease the tension in the room, because when you don't have a level head things go wrong and things get sent out wrong...but that is just my guess, hell I could totally be wrong on my observation and that wouldn't be the first time that happened.

No offense to others in the thread but...

Everybody is going to see exactly what they want to see. And it's already started with the comments about smirks. Do you honestly think nobody managed to find one thing to smile about that day?

I have laughed hysterically while being shot at. Not shot near. Not hearing gunfire. Being shot AT. Because at that moment in time, from my perspective, something funny was happening.

If they all had frozen masks of pants crapping fear, people would be in here saying they're acting and over-doing it and not projecting any degree of calm.

I think they're interesting pictures, but won't offer any opinion beyond that.
