Government Releases Photos of Former Vice President Dick Cheney on September 11, 2001
There is much controversy over the last presidential administration and many heated opinions about former Vice President Dick Cheney. But, this isn’t a political forum, so let’s stay focused…
September 11, 2001 was a day that shocked the nation, regardless of whether you subscribe to the government’s narrative or to the many conspiracy theories that have followed. Now, thanks to a Freedom of Information request, the U.S. National Archives has released to the public a collection of images of Mr. Cheney from that day, many taken inside the President’s Emergency Operations Center.
Some of the images convey the weight of the situation being faced, while others simply look like another day at the office or a glib response to a national tragedy.
I must say, though… It’s gotta be disheartening to work as a staff photographer for the government, who credits your photos simply as “Office of Management and Administration.”
