The American public can finally get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into what the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks was like for former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney thanks to a set of newly released photos.

The National Archives released Friday a set of photographs taken by Cheney’s staff photographer that show the Bush administration responding to the tragedy, USA Today reported.

The majority of the photos were taken from inside the President’s Emergency Operations Center, which is located underneath the White House.

In addition to the president and vice president, Secretary of State Colin Powell, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and Laura Bush and Lynne Cheney, the first and second ladies, are all featured heavily in the photos.

The images were released to comply with a Freedom of Information Act request from Colette Neirouz Hanna, coordinating producer for films appearing on PBS' Frontline, USA Today reported.
