    He did it. It's not a smear to say he did.

    I don't know if there's a legal definition of the exact word smear. (Of course, I do know there's the similar concepts of libel and slander.)

    It brings up the interesting point of whether the diarist is in doubt as to whether Tsarnaev's actually made the statements or not.
