CBS reported this morning that investigators found a note in the boat that bombing suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev was hiding in before he was found by police in Watertown.

Boston Globe deputy metro editor Mike Bello reported on RadioBDC's morning show that the note claimed the Boston Marathon bombings were retribution for US military action in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tsarnaev also allegedly called victims of the April 15 attacks "collateral damage," comparing them to innocent Muslims who have been collateral damage of US wars, saying, "when you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims."

The younger Tsarnaev called his brother a martyr in the note, which was written on a cabin wall of the boat, according to the CBS report. He also said that he did not mourn his brother and expected to see him in heaven.

Bello discussed this bizarre turn in the case, and how this evidence might be used against Dzokhar Tsarnaev during his upcoming trial.
