Heat Map of John Walsh's Paper

In this New York Times map, Yellow indicates "Plagiarism," and Pink indicates "En Fuego Plagiarism."

Okay, just kidding. Yellow indicates where he footnoted sentences entirely or substantially lifted from a source, but did not put the words in quotes to indicate they were being quoted. Pink indicates where he wrote sentences entirely or substantially lifted from a source, and did not even footnote or otherwise acknowledge the source.

White indicates passages which seem to be his own words.

There's not a lot of white in the map. Don't be fooled by all the white from pages 14 to 19 -- on page 14, his footnotes begin (actually, they're endnotes).

Page 13 is particularly a problem. It's all Pink. These are the his key recommendations -- all substantially borrowed from a Carnegie Endowment policy brief.

Earlier, Walsh's aide had floated a soft version of the "He had PTSD" excuse. When she claimed this, she said he had some kind of post-"experiential" syndrome, owing to the recent suicide of a fellow soldier, but was not professionally treated for it.

Then the story got traction, and Walsh now says he did have PTSD, and he did get treated for it.
