CBS News correspondent John Miller reported this morning that according to sources, Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev wrote a note while inside the Watertown boat he used to hide from police.

In the note, according to Miller, Tsarnaev wrote that the bombings were retribution against the US for actions against Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Miller also reports that Tsarnaev's note called the Boston bombing victims "collateral damage," and referred to his deceased brother Tamerlan as a martyr.
