Unlikely rare events are often treated as if they are completely random flukes and the damage from them can not be blamed on anyone. This goes from things like terrorist attacks to famines, droughts, financial bubbles, poisonous medicines, contaminated food, earthquakes, cyclones, bridge collapses, etc. In fact you can estimate the likelihood of most of these somewhat accurately, and they should be planned for, and reasonable steps taken to prepare for handling them or preventing them.

Government has grossly failed us in this. Obviously this US government has failed miserably, but so have many others around the world and so have many previous US governments.
