(MEDIA GENERAL) – Last week, the National Archives released more than 350 new images of the Bush administration responding during the 9/11 terror attacks.

The images, which can be viewed here in the National Archives Flickr library, were released after a Freedom of Information Act request, according to the Boston Globe. The request reportedly came from producers affiliated with PBS’ documentary series “Frontline.”

The photos include shots of Vice President Dick Cheney watching news coverage of the attacks in his office, as well as Cheney and several members of President George W. Bush’s administration in the Emergency Operations Center beneath the White House.
