A new article by New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin has put an important feature of Montana Senator John Walsh’s military credentials in question for being unfairly earned.

NYT Article on Walsh Plagiarism

The piece, titled Montana Democrat’s Thesis Presented Others’ Work as His Own, makes the following claim:

“[O]ne of the highest-profile credentials of Mr. Walsh’s 33-year military career appears to have been improperly attained. An examination of the final paper required for Mr. Walsh’s master’s degree from the United States Army War College indicates the senator appropriated at least a quarter of his thesis on American Middle East policy from other authors’ works, with no attribution.”


The New York Times also has an accompanying piece which lays out Walsh’s thesis paper, titled “The Case for Democracy as a Long Term National Strategy,” and shows the pages of Walsh’s paper that are believed to be plagiarized.

Martin also calls into question where Walsh earned his undergraduate degree claiming that a discrepancy exists between claims that the degree was earned at Albany college when, Walsh “actually earned his bachelor of science from what was then known as Regents College, an adult learning institute that issued degrees under the umbrella of the University of the State of New York.”
