Newly-released photos show Cheney, President Bush and other members of the administration reacting on the day of the attacks. The photos were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request and were taken by Cheney's staff photographer.
Two planes struck the twin towers and other planes hit the Pentagon and crashed in Pennsylvania. The attacks killed nearly 3,000 people.
