Reading this gave me the belief that the BSD that it was similar enough to merit my statement.

Well, read the actual BSD license. Go on, it's only three paragraphs and two clauses. The reason why it's GPL compatible is because it places no restrictions on the use of the code beyond asserting the identity of the original author and a standard warranty disclaimer. That's compatible with anything.

The GPL, on the other hand, has seventeen sections detailing all the possible ways that you can distribute source and binaries. It's been designed to close up all the possible ways that people might take free code and make it non-free.
