Jill Kelley turned to friend and Tampa FBI agent for help [shirtless photo a gag]
St. Petersburg - Tampa Bay Times ^ | November 15, 2012 | Times staff and wires

TAMPA — Frederick W. Humphries II helped make the FBI's cases against a would-be bomber on the West Coast and a university student in Tampa.

But the investigation he is most certainly going to be remembered for is one that led to the downfall of CIA director and retired Gen. David Petraeus.

Humphries was revealed Wednesday night as the Tampa FBI agent who took the complaints from socialite Jill Kelley that started a cyberstalking investigation and uncovered Petraeus' affair with biographer Paula Broadwell.

"He and his wife have been social friends of Mr. and Mrs. Kelley for years," the attorney, Lawrence Berger said. "Apparently, she felt threatened and she went to him. He had no further involvement in the investigation."

Earlier this week, a report in the Wall Street Journal depicted the agent as "obsessed" with the case, once sending a shirtless picture of himself to Kelley, who often threw extravagant parties for military brass at her South Tampa mansion.

Berger confirmed that Humphries had, indeed, sent a shirtless photo of himself to Kelley several years ago — but said the picture was part of a series of jokes between the families.

In the photo, he said, Humphries appeared without a shirt standing between two firing-range dummies. It was not of a sexual nature, Berger said.

Berger, the general counsel for the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, took issue with the way Humphries is being portrayed. He said he believes someone in the FBI is spreading false information about Humphries to embarrass him.

"I think there's a leaker in the bureau," Berger told the Tampa Bay Times. "Somebody has it in for my guy."

The “snips” in the article tell a BIGGER story - of how Agent Humphries has been involved in stopping and prosecuting terrorists in the U.S.

Another friendship with his wife included.
Not sure how they all met.
She sure knows how to cultivate “friendships.”

Now we know why it was Rep. Reichert that was first contacted.

How strange it is that to read the other side now, this agent does not sound like who was first portrayed in the beginning. But the first stories always seem to be the ones people remember.

So...more anti-muslim terrorist officials are being purged. All these dots will connect to obama.

Check out the difference in reporting. I think the powers that be are very unhappy this agent ratted them out to the Republicans.

What if Ms. Kelly was some kind of agent? Or manipulated by one?

She could draw senior military to her home, then; say massacre or poison them? How could our highest levels expose themselves to such a risk?

Paula B may have done us a favor.

Sounds like one “family” was embedded in the other “family”.

Paula managed to bed a former 4 star general, head of the CIA who had to resign in disgrace... I won't be considering this a favor to US anytime soon.

Not complicated enough yet—Broadwell sent warning emails to Allen as well.
