PRESIDENT BUSH AND VICE PRESIDENT CHENEY WALK FROM THE OVAL OFFICE.
A October 29, 2003 file photo shows U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney (R) looking back at U.S. President George W. Bush at the White House. Bush and Cheney make a joint appearance before the Sept. 11, 2001, commission April 29, 2004 to be quizzed behind closed doors on the actions they took on that day and how they responded to pre-9/11 warnings. Bush and Cheney agreed under pressure from victims families and the commission to answer its questions in the Oval Office of the White House starting at 9:30 a.m. (1330 GMT), but only on condition that they appear together and in private. In an age when Bush's every public utterance is transcribed for posterity, no tape recording or transcription of the session will be permitted. REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque KL/GAC/JDP
