The year 1999 seven month,
From the sky will come a great King of terror:
To bring back to life the great King of Angolmois, (the Mongols),
Before after Mars to reign by good luck
(Century X, Quatrain 72)

You didn't read the quatrain right.
First the king of terror will bring the king of the Mongols. The King of terror from the sky came in 2001, not so bad co spidering how far off from the original author date.
One well-known supposed prophecy is that "a great and terrifying leader would come out of the sky" in 1999 and 7 months "to resuscitate the great King from Angoumois." But the phrase d'effraieur (of terror) in fact occurs nowhere in the original printing, which merely uses the word deffraieur (defraying, hosting), and Nostradamus sometimes uses the word ciel simply to mean 'region', rather than 'sky'. On the basis of Nostradamus's by-now well known technique of projecting past events into the future, Lemesurier suggests that X.72 therefore refers back to the restoration to health of the captive Francis I of France (who was Duke of Angoulême) following a surprise visit to his cell by his host, the then Holy Roman Emperor Charles V in 1525. No fewer than five of the planets were in the same signs on both occasions.

Is it a failure of intelligence or a deliberate act of neglecting it?
I too wonder how this could have been overlooked so easily by everyone in the region.
Furthermore, ISIS very name tends to support the idea that it is a puppet organization of western intelligence (which doesn't want to defeat it until it has undermined secular govts in the region we don't like.
