We knew about Osama Bin Ladin and the threat of terrorists using
planes as bombs long before 9-11, yet nothing was done to prevent it.

Neocons Convinced Republican Bush to Ignore Al Qaeda Attack Warnings Leading Up to 9/11

When people adopt a highly rationalized worldview designed to
justify whatever it is that they want to do, there's no diverting them
from their plan -- even in the face of evidence that suggests their
plan will lead to disaster. Such was the case with President George W.
Bush, according to author Kurt Eichenwald, in the days leading up to
the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

While it's long been known that Bush was briefed in August of that
year about the possibility of an imminent attack, Eichenwald has
uncovered evidence of a steady stream of CIA warnings about al Qaeda
activity in the U.S. that began in May 2001. From Eichenwald's op-ed
in today's New York Times:
The direct warnings to Mr. Bush about the possibility of a Qaeda
attack began in the spring of 2001. By May 1, the Central Intelligence
Agency told the White House of a report that “a group presently in the
United States” was planning a terrorist operation. Weeks later, on
June 22, the daily brief reported that Qaeda strikes could be
“imminent,” although intelligence suggested the time frame was
flexible.
For the Bush administration, it was a highly inconvenient stream of
information, bent as it was on invading Iraq. So the neocons driving
the Bush foreign policy arrived at a novel reading of the situation:
Osama Bin Laden was simply trying to divert the administration's
attention from Iraq, because he was in league with Saddam Hussein.
From Eichenwald:
An intelligence official and a member of the Bush administration both
told me in interviews that the neoconservative leaders who had
recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House
that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden
was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the
administration from Saddam Hussein, whom the neoconservatives saw as a
greater threat. Intelligence officials, these sources said, protested
that the idea of Bin Laden, an Islamic fundamentalist, conspiring with
Mr. Hussein, an Iraqi secularist, was ridiculous, but the
neoconservatives’ suspicions were nevertheless carrying the day.
At one meeting of intelligence officials, Eichenwald reports, an
exasperated officer suggested that the whole counter-terrorism team
put in for transfers to other departments in order to avoid being left
holding the bag when the attack inevitably came to pass.

There's no way to know whether the attacks on the World Trade Center,
the Pentagon, and whatever target had been intended for the plane that
went down in Shanksville, Penn., could have been prevented based on
the available evidence. But Eichenwald's reporting stunningly reveals
the lie-steeped hubris with which U.S. foreign policy was conducted
under George W. Bush, and a callous disregard for the safety of the
American people.

Even before Bush, Bill Clinton was briefed on the danger of Bin Laden and even had a chance to capture him and refused to do it. Be careful when you point your finger at someone. Because 3 fingers are always pointing back at you.

Not exactly correct. Clinton knew about the threat of Bin Laden, was advised to capture or kill him, had many opportunities to do so and he refused. Because of his lack of a backbone, OBL was able to pull of the world's worst terrorist attack against the US.

Bush put an all out effort to find and capture him, but it was too late. OBL went into hiding. It simply took time to find and capture him. Obama being in the White House at the time had nothing to do with it.

Tell that to the people in Iraq who are being overrun by Osama's crony, whom Obama released from Camp Bucca in 2009.
