Tsarnaev left note in boat he hid in, sources say

Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left a note claiming responsibility for the April 13 attack. Sources say that Tsarnaev wrote the note in the boat he was hiding in as police pursued him. It reads as part manifesto, part suicide note and part justification for the killing the maiming of innocent civilians. The note , which was scrawled with a marker on the inside wall of the cabin, said the bombings were retribution for U.S. military action against Afghanistan and Iraq and called the Boston victims “collateral damage.” Dzhokar said he didn’t mourn older brother Tamerlan, writing that by that point, Tamerlan was a martyr in paradise—and that he expected to join him there soon.
