Senator John Walsh, a Montana Democrat, plagiarized significant portions of the thesis that won him a master's degree at the U.S. Army War College, The New York Times reported. The article said that Walsh "appropriated at least a quarter of his thesis on American Middle East policy from other authors’ works, with no attribution." Confronted with examples of the plagiarism, he told the Times that he did not "do anything intentional here." The article said that when asked directly if he had plagiarized, Walsh said, “I don’t believe I did, no.”
