BREAKING NEWS – VETERAN REPORTER BOB WOODWARD THREATENED BY WHITE HOUSE

Bob Woodward Philly Author Event (12/10/12)

By Brett LoGiurato for Business Insider

Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN  that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email that he  would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known  as the sequester.

 

CNN host Wolf  Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate  Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.

“It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling  reporters, ‘You’re going to regret doing something that you believe in,'”  Woodward said.

“I think they’re confused,” Woodward said of the White House’s pushback on  his reporting.

Earlier today on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Woodward ripped into Obama  in what has become an ongoing feud between the veteran Washington  Post journalist and the White House. Woodward said Obama was showing  a “kind of madness I haven’t seen in a long time” for a decision not  to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget  concerns.

The Defense Department said in early  February that it would not deploy the U.S.S. Harry Truman to the  Persian Gulf, citing budget concerns relating to the looming cuts known as the  sequester.

“Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying, ‘Oh, by the way, I  can’t do this because of some budget document?'” Woodward said on MSNBC.

“Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I  can’t get the aircraft carriers I need?'” Or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You  know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein‘s intelligence headquarters,’ …  because of some budget document?”

Last weekend, Woodward  called out Obama for what he said was “moving the goal posts” on the sequester by requesting that revenue be  part of a deal to avert it.

    Finally, the guy who brought down Nixon with the Watergate scandal is touching a nerve on an even bigger scandal.
