Who is to blame when governments know of terror attacks beforehand yet allow them to occur?

Right at the very end of this article in the London Independent there is the following:

“…Kenya’s National Intelligence Agency (NIS)…insisted it did warn the police and officials inside the President’s office before the Westgate siege, but its warnings went unheeded…

According to the same report, a pregnant policewoman avoided Westgate after her brother, who works for Kenyan intelligence, warned her of a terror attack. “She has told police that her brother, who is a NIS officer, warned her not to visit Westgate that Saturday because she would not be able to run,” a senior officer was quoted as saying…”

This proves not only foreknowledge of the when but also the where which is almost unprecedented. And yet the Kenyan government allowed this horrific attack to occur?

Apart from the obvious question as to why they allowed it to happen, why is the media not hounding this story down and shouting it from the rooftops? Why is it right at the end of the article?

Why is it that individual citizens need to connect the very visible dots and get some semblance of truth?
