    Sounds like "What we have here is (a) failure to communicate".

    Oh, I don't doubt that at this point. No, he's not about to let it go now. This whole thing is now officially an "event". Whether it's significant or not remains to be seen. I suspect not, but I was wrong at least once before. Don't push me on that, or I'll be forced to revise it.

    good.

    Now the question journalists should be asking Woodward, is why did he not challenge this threat in the email and did so publicly.

    He is clearly facing down this perceived threat now. So why appear friendly then, and claim the threat now?

    It is a valid question, but also one that a person honestly threatened can have a good explanation for.

    Re: White House threatens Bob Woodward

    the elephant in the room no one is discussing is what was the conversation Woodward had with the WH official that was referenced in the email .what was the content and the attitude of that conversation? The email confirmed it was heated, That conversation needs to be added to the equation to put it in proper context before you can make an honest determination if Woodward is being genuine when he said it was a threat

    Do you think that Woodward will ever regret doing what he did?

    Edith Piaf didn't: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3Kvu6Kgp88

    She said: Non, Je ne regrette rien.

    I agree with her.

    I have no regrets either, I have always done what I wanted to do and I'm prepared to live with the results.

    Good, bad, or indifferent.

    Him coming forward with the threat was in response to the WH trying to discredit Woodward because he screwed up the democrat narrative that it was the republicans idea for the sequester. there for the blame needed to be laid at their feet. when the truth of the matter confirmed by Woodward book and Jay Carny the idea did come from Obama

    No. I think Woodward has been around long enough now to consider his comments and their likely repercussions before he speaks.

    Keeping in mind, Woodward is an icon granted immense respect by both the left and the right.

    I'm hoping you name a particular writer for the Times...we'll see what cerebralism lay absent

    Mark Twain.

    I guarantee you that he won't be changing any of his comments.

    The rest of them all have their finger in the wind.

    Re: White House threatens Bob Woodward

    I would like to know how many damaging stories have been sat on and or not perused because of threats and intimidation by the WH
    How many future stories will not be pursued for the same reasons

    Lany Davis came forward today and admitted to the WH threatening to pull the Washington Times WH press credentials who Lanny write for if they didn't drop his columns
