Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was found hiding in a boat days after the blasts, left a handwritten message describing the attack as retribution for U.S. wars in Muslim countries, CBS News reported on Thursday.
The CBS News report, citing anonymous sources, said that Tsarnaev used a pen to write the message on an interior wall of the boat, where police found him bleeding from gunshot wounds four days after the April 15 bombing.
The note summed up with the idea that "when you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims," CBS News reported.
CBS News did not make clear how its sources knew the information and Reuters was not immediately able to confirm the report.
A spokeswoman for the FBI in Boston, Katherine Gulotta, declined to confirm or deny the report.
The CBS News report said Tsarnaev, 19, described his older brother and fellow suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, who died in a gunbattle with police, as "a martyr."
"Basically, the note says ... the bombings were retribution for the U.S. crimes against Muslims in places like Iraq and Afghanistan and that the victims of the Boston bombing were ’collateral damage,’ the same way innocent victims have been collateral damage in U.S. wars around the world," said CBS News reporter John Miller, who is a former spokesman for the FBI.
Red Ice Creations Comment:
Unnamed and unverifiable sources? Check.
Inflammatory, trigger words like ’attack’, ’muslim’, ’martyr’? Check.
No confirmation or denials from FBI or police? Check.
Instant guilt for the suspect in the court of public opinion? Check.
Reportedly Dzhokhar (the younger brother) was unarmed, holed up in a covered boat at night with no light source, and after being shot, was bleeding profusely. He found a pen and wrote out a message in the dark while under constant fire from police?
This whole scenario doesn’t seem suspect to CBS?
With releases of nebulous, unsupported ’evidence’ being released to the public, coupled with trigger words and the dramatic ’terror’ narrative, how on earth is the suspect going to get any kind of fair trial?
The thermal imaging video, taken from a helicopter hovering over a residential area shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaev hiding under the tarpaulin in boat in house’s back garden in Boston.

ALEC corruption: Legislators and corporate lobbyists meet in secret at Savannah resort 2015-05-28 23:59
The Georgia Legislature has a message for voters: don't ask us about our meetings with corporate lobbyists behind closed doors.
The 11Alive Investigators tracked lawmakers to a resort hotel in Savannah last week, where we observed state legislators and lobbyists mingling in the hotel bar the night before they gathered in private rooms to decide what new laws would best serve ...
Swedish politician: US is the true cause of the masses of refugees from the Middle East 2015-05-28 20:13
Editors Note: And who controls US foreign policy? Listen to Jeff Gates.
The present Swedish debate about war refugees from the Middle East is an example of peer restricted expression. In the name of political correctness or perceived decency, any questioning of maximum generosity in opening Swedish borders for the refugees is indignantly rejected by the official mainstream. We have a ...
Even if Patriot Act Expires, Government Will Keep Spying on All Americans 2015-05-28 19:52
Government Will Use "Secret Interpretations" to Get Around Legal Prohibitions
Mass surveillance under the Patriot Act is so awful that even its author says that the NSA has gone far beyond what the Act intended (and that the intelligence chiefs who said Americans aren't being spied on should be prosecuted for perjury).
Specifically, the government is using a "secret interpretation" of the ...

All hands on deck for global, economic, corporate dictatorship
There are dots to connect here. They're real, and they're spectacular.
Let me begin with a brief exchange from a 1978 interview, conducted by reporter Jeremiah Novak. He was speaking with two American members of the Trilateral Commission (TC), a group founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and his intellectual flunkey, Zbigniew Brzezinski.
