Has that actually been confirmed.  Any machine associated with the path
could have been compromised including systems with transitive trust which
may not appear in the e-mail headers.

Occam's Razor would say the message most likely did originated where it
says it originated.  But when I just checked it wasn't listed in any of
the major block lists of compromised hosts (spamcop does list it as a
spam source), and the Pentagon hasn't confirmed the computer was compromised.
