Osborn Memo Not Authentic

Nebraska U.S. Senate candidate Shane Osborn (R) distributed an official-looking Navy memo supporting his account of his 2001 decision to land a crippled Navy EP-3 reconnaissance plane in China that has dogged his campaign.

But the Omaha World-Herald "has learned that the unsigned memo was not authorized by the Navy, or vetted through normal channels, and was written as a favor to Osborn by a Navy buddy working at the Pentagon."
