I guess one can look at this in either of 2 ways:
1.  All levels of government are doing the best they can under very difficult circumstances, or 2.  Our government--"of the people, by the people, and FOR the people"--has been trying for almost a decade to reduce its size to the point of disappearance, hoping to reduce taxes to the same point, and now the chickens have come home to roost.
Funny you should mention-- George Bush (Big George) and Bill Clinton said the same things between them today on CNN in interviews over what their next step would be. It's really fair to say that both choices are accurate. The important question is whether response to another serious terrorist attack will follow the same format. We probably won't know 'til then because any investigation will be allowed to get exactly nowhere.
