Shirtless FBI agent in Petraeus scandal once key figure in Seattle

Source: Seattle P-I

The FBI agent who started an investigation into the extramarital affair of CIA head David Petraeus has been named -- and it turns out, he has ties to Seattle.

The New York Times today named agent Frederick W. Humphries, 47, as the man who fielded a complaint from Tampa, Fla., socialite Jill Kelley and inadvertently launched an investigation that would lead to the resignation of Petraeus.
Prior to transferring to Tampa, Humphries worked in the Seattle FBI office. He was reportedly instrumental in uncovering the 1999 millennium bombing plot, when Algerian terrorist Ahmed Ressam entered the U.S. at Port Angeles from Canada as part of a plan to bomb the Los Angeles International Airport.

Humphries became involved in the case at the start because he could speak French, and so did Ressam, who claimed to be a Quebec citizen when he was arrested.

5. He posed with mannequins.

The New York Times described the photo as non-sexual, saying Humphries was posing with two mannequins.

FBI agent: Shirtless photo was joke emailed to friends and reporter

This photograph shows FBI Special Agent Frederick W. Humphries posing with target dummies following a SWAT practice. This is the "shirtless image" that has been alluded to in the investigation into emails that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus. Humphries sent the 2010 photograph to many people, including Tampa socialite Jill Kelley and a reporter at The Seattle Times.

6. Is he the improperly-labeled-as-whistleblower agent that foretold Cantor of the investigation?

This whole story is thick with thickness.

8. Yup...he actually went to Dave Reichert first..now it's clear why

Reichert was Sheriff of King County when this character was in the Seattle FBI office, so they no doubt know each other well.

9. Ha! Well-said! ("...thick with thickness") And...

...inadvertent with inadvertency, too.

Interesting how fascist plots get spun in the corpo-fascist media: through a dark glass, thickly.
