An FBI agent issued warnings to upper levels concerning flight training the terrorist were undergoing, and in some cases, his warnings were ignored as was the case with Moussaoui.
Complacency and ignorance in government circles played a part and incredibly, government blunders continued for years after the 911 attack, but government blunders are nothing new nor unique to the United States. Hitler's blunders are well-known and thanks to his incredible missteps, he aided the allies during the war. One of the worst things that could have had happened to the allies during the war would have been the death of Hitler.
Bush and Rice were aware of the warnings, but they chose to ignore those warnings despite the fact they were written all over the wall.
