There's no reason to assume that the government knew anything about this beforehand. Sure, it's possible, maybe even probable, but it's nothing we should assume. There have been terrorist attacks before that took us by complete surprise, or at least took people at the top by surprise. Think of all the mass shootings in the past where only school councilors or whoever knew there was something wrong with them. When lone individuals decide to do something horrible like this there isn't as much for anti-terrorist taskforces or whatever to notice before something happens. (I think the Unabomber went unknown for something like 17 years before he was caught.) There's not a whole lot you can do to anticipate attacks by single people with a cause/grudge/crazybrain.
