Did the Tsarnaevs have help in building bombs in Boston Marathon attack?

There are new details about the chilling note allegedly written by Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

According to prosecutors, this is the note Tsarnaev wrote while he hid from authorities in a boat in Watertown, Massachusetts.

Prosecutors: Tsarnaevs used Christmas lights to make bomb fuses

In it, he writes: "God has a plan for each person. Mine was to hide in this boat and shed some light on our actions."

We're also learning the Tsarnaevs used Christmas lights and model car parts to make the explosives.

David Mattingly has this Outfront investigation on just how dangerous these devices can be.

    It does seem to me that we have entered a new era. 9/11 was the wake up call. Now we all have to do our part to defend this country against foreign AND domestic terrorism. Sad, truly sad.
