Attempting to put this on Bush's head is akin to blaming WWII on FDR. A mistake made only by those who know little of history. The U.S. was attacked by Al-Qaeda repeatedly throughout the 90's and did very little in response. Cruise missiles aimed at backwater camps and Sudanese chemical plants were the extent of our armed response to the growing threat. The "blame" for 9/11 can be spread around the world.
