Was the U.S. unsuccessful or just disinterested in developing jet fighters?

Was the US unsuccessful or just disinterested in developing jet fighters in WW2? You can argue that the majority of US aero engine manufacturers were disinterested in developing jet engines at the start of WWII - but they were not alone in that. Most of the US was disinterested but Hap Arnold and Kelly Johnson saved the day! Certainly Lockheed were doing their best to get people interested in their Lockheed L-133 but with total lack of success. The Starjet Might Have Been America's First Jet Powered Fighter
