Army War College Rescinds Senator’s Degree
[su_right_ad]Democratic Montana Senator John Walsh’s master’s degree has been rescinded because of plagiarism charges.
The Carlisle, Pennsylvania, college assigned an academic review board to the probe in August after The New York Times published a story showing that the Montana senator borrowed heavily from other sources for a paper he wrote in 2007.
Walsh was pursuing a Master of Strategic Studies degree at age 47, a year before he became Montana’s adjutant general overseeing the state National Guard.,,
‘The board found that then Colonel John Walsh did commit the offense of plagiarism and thus his Master’s Degree and status as graduate of the U.S. Army War College should be revoked,’ War College spokeswoman Carol Kerr said in a statement…
Possible extenuating circumstances submitted by Walsh of post-traumatic stress disorder and a fellow soldier’s suicide were not enough to support any other recommendation.
