Mr. Nicey Has a Message for America

It didn't take defense-oriented types long to come up with the theory that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was merely the teenage tag-along to his charismatic older brother when he planted the Boston Marathon bomb.  He wasn't really a Muslim radical, you see, just a fun-loving, impressionable kid.

That was then.  Today comes news that Dzhokhar scrawled a note inside the boat where he hid out.  Here's the ABC News headline:  

"F*** America, Boston Marathon Suspect Wrote in Boat."

The story begins:

As police searched for him, and as he lay bleeding in his boat hideout, Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev wrote "F*** America" on the side panel of the boat, police in Massachusetts told ABC News.

Officers said they also discovered the phrase "Praise Allah" on the boat's side panels and several anti-American screeds, including references to Iraq, Afghanistan and "the infidels."

A BostonHerald.com story notes that Dzhokhar referred to the victims, including an eight-year old boy, as "collateral damage," echoing Timothy McVeigh's famous phrase.  

With any luck, Dzhokhar will be joining Timmy real soon.
