Going on Google or digging in a few history books will easily answer the question and it's not what the Republicans on the debate stage Saturday night; Rubio blamed it on Clinton. Cruz blamed it on Obama, JEB! wanted to blame it on any one but his brother.

What everyone on the stage overlooked is that there  Osama Bin Laden and  Al Queda appeared (was created) by the one and only; Ronald Reagan (the Gipper)

The US government trained, armed, funded and supported Osama bin Laden and his followers in Afghanistan during the cold war. With a huge investment of $3,000,000,000 (three billion US dollars), the CIA effectively created and nurtured bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist network using American tax-payers money. Afghanistan is one of the world's poorest countries, where such an enormous sum sum of money would have had extraordinary value.

BBC news article:

"...Bin Laden left Saudi Arabia in 1979 to fight against the Soviet invasion 
of Afghanistan. The Afghan jihad was backed with American dollars and 
had the blessing of the governments of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. 
He received security training from the CIA itself."

Reagan helped create the Taliban and Osama Bin Laden. Reagan fought a proxy war with the Soviet Union by training, arming, equipping, and funding Islamist mujahidin fighters in Afghanistan. Reagan funneled billions of dollars, along with top-secret intelligence and sophisticated weaponry to these fighters through the Pakistani intelligence service. The Talbian and Osama Bin Laden — a prominent mujahidin commander — emerged from these mujahidin groups Reagan helped create, and U.S. policy towards Pakistan remains strained because of the intelligence services’ close relations to these fighters. In fact, Reagan’s decision to continue the proxy war after the Soviets were willing to retreat played a direct role in Bin Laden’s ascendancy.
