Question: What do Ben Domenech and Russian President Vladimir Putin have in common?
Answer: They're both plagiarists.
The embarrassing revelation that the former KGB agent may have cheated and lied about his qualifications follows a long search by US scholars for evidence of the President's academic prowess. A copy of the thesis was eventually found in the electronic files of a Moscow technical library.Maybe Jim Brady at the Post can hire Putin to write a blog if he doesn't choose Gen. J.C. Christian, patriot.
According to Clifford G. Gaddy, a senior fellow at Brookings, 16 of the 20 pages that open a key section of Mr Putin's work were copied either word for word or with minute alterations from a management study, Strategic Planning and Policy, by US professors William King and David Cleland. The study was translated into Russian by a KGB-related institute in the early 1990s.
