The Petraeus sex scandal turns out to have more twists than a pretzel factory. It came to light when a Florida woman started receiving threatening emails from an unknown source, who turned out to be the CIA director's biographer. The Florida woman went to an FBI agent, from whom, the Wall Street Journal reports, she had previously received shirtless photos. The shirtless FBI agent got the ball rolling on the investigation, which uncovered the affair between the CIA director and the biographer.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports, the Florida woman was also receiving "between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents--most of them e-mails--that contain 'potentially inappropriate' communication" from the Marine general who serves as the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan. To be sure, there could be an innocent explanation. Maybe they were passing around copies of ObamaCare.

CBS News reports there's also a custody battle in which the CIA director and the Marine general both served as character references for the sister of the woman who received the threatening emails, the shirtless photos and the 20,000 to 30,000 pages of potentially inappropriate communications.

And with all this sex and titillation, attention to the attacks and deaths in Benghazi, although related, takes a back seat.

Fleg, don't tell me you used to watch Melrose Place?

Man, in college, that was OUR soap opera in the 1990's.

I can't tell you that because I didn't.

Man, in college, that was OUR soap opera in the 1990's.

In college we watched Rawhide the first year and Hawk the second, the latter being a short-lived Burt Reynolds cop show. And Dragnet, Get Smart, some Star Trek (the first time they were shown). I don't recall any prime-time soaps in the late 60s unless you count I Dream of Jeanie. But then I don't recall a lot of things from the late 60s.

The only nighttime soap opera I ever watched regularly was Dynasty.

"The only nighttime soap opera I ever watched regularly was Dynasty." - andrew


We used to watch Dynasty back in the day (as "the Old Man") would say. Some of the shows I watch now are just thinly veiled soap operas. I think Desperate Housewives was essentially a soap opera. Can't think of any others right now but I'm sure there are others we've followed also.

I've always hated soap operas. I'm not into lots of touchy feely stuff. I tried to make myself watch General Hospital once, but I just couldn't do it. It made my skin crawl.

Yep. I had no idea what I had done until I read fleg's post.

And where's bhm? I'd say that four 5's in a row with a 6 on each end trumps a triple-zero post any day of the week.
