Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2005]
Origins: Ed Offley, editor of the DefenseWatch magazine at SFTT.org, where the piece cited above was originally published, wrote to tell us:
I am writing to confirm the authenticity of the Ed Stanton column on the behavior of relief aid workers aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln. Following an email from a mutual friend about comments the officer had made earlier on the situation onDefensewatch has since published an editorial by another USS Abraham Lincoln officer who disclaims the opinions expressed in the pseudonymous "Ed Stanton" article.
