In the wake of Osama bin Laden's death, MSNBC anchor Lawrence O'Donnell said the Bush administration and its backers could learn a lesson in how to fight terrorism from Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) and President Barack Obama.

"Now is the time for the Bush-Cheney fanatics -- the people who created the war on terror and who got so much of it wrong -– to listen to John Kerry and to listen to President Barack Obama teach them how to fight terrorists," O'Donnell said Tuesday night.

"The last decade did not have to be a decade of war," he added. "A wiser president...could have saved us from our overreaction" over 9/11.
