Veteran F.B.I. Agent Helped
Start Petraeus E-Mail Inquiry

New York Times, by Michael S. Schmidt

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/14/2012 6:41:50 PM

Dover, Fla. - The F.B.I. agent who helped start the investigation that led to the resignation of David H. Petraeus as C.I.A. director is a “hard-charging” veteran counterterrorism investigator who used his command of French in investigating the foiled “millennium” terrorist plot in 1999, colleagues said on Wednesday. The agent, Frederick W. Humphries II, 47, took the initial complaint from Jill Kelley, the Tampa, Fla., hostess who was socially active in military circles there, about e-mails she found disturbing that accused her of inappropriately flirtatious behavior toward Mr. Petraeus.

Comments:
*W/ Michael S. Schmidt reported from Dover, Scott Shane from Washington, and Alain Delaquérière from New York. Eric Schmitt contributed reporting from Washington.

So much info, but still no 0bama birth certificate or college transcripts [at any price].

This is far more interesting than some of the other "reporting" we´ve seen today.

Explains his family´s relationship with the Kelleys (which goes way back).

Explains the shirtless photo sent years ago as a family prank (and what a ridiculous news picup that was!).

Explains how he became frustrated when he thought the investigation was going nowhere, so got to Eric Cantor through an intermediary.

Obie confirmed in his presser today things that had been speculated since 9/11. Susan Rice was doing a presentation when she appeared on the Sunday shows. She knew nothing about Benghazi, was just relaying intel she had been given (by whom?). "Don´t go after her, go after me!"

As Charles Krauthammer just said, he will regret some of the things he volunteered today when he panicked.

NOT without authorization from higher ups, he didn´t.
WHO gave the go-ahead? Eric Holder? The WH ?

Why was the UN ambassador sent to Sunday talk shows in the first place? It is the Secretary of State who oversees embassies and consulate personnel. Very strange selection by Zero.

If only we had more Agent Humphries. Had he not gone to Canter we still might not know about Petraeus. Agent Humphries may have a good case of retaliation under the Whistleblowers act. How did the FBI respond? By leaking a story about a photo, leaving the impression that it was recently sent and was sexual in nature. That´s it. Kill the messenger. His career is over. Another guy unemployed thanks to Obama.

NYT´s fluff piece, to claim they are investigating the sex scandal, NOT Benghazi.

In what kind of "social relationships of families" do people send shirtless photos of themselves? This is just bizarre!

Anthony Weiner was also in a social relationship with people on social pages, was´t he?

The "shirtless" photo of him was taken posing between two shooting range targets. Apparently the families exchanged goofy photos once in a while.

Some are following the media´s kneejerk reaction to this information and have jumped to its being some kind of thing going on with Jill Kelley. How gullible we are, how eager we are to believe the worst at even a hint from the media. I thought we were smarter than that around here?

That press conference was beyond creepy. The fawning press, especially the woman who seemed to want to get really close to the Prez.. and then the spirited defense of Susan Ric.

What was up with that? I´ve never seen him so passionate and roused out of his usual sleepy lethargy. And calling out two senators by name.

I wish I thought he would regret it, but he won´t. He will never be held accountable.

he sure wont be held accountable...
just look at the contradiction here...
tells Susan Rice to go out and push the video lie...but tells Romney in a debate that he used the word Terrorist while giving a talk from the Rose Garden regarding the Benghazie attack..
He is using two different explanations..and getting away with it.....

The media´s embrace of the "shirtless photo", with a purposely absent timeline reminds me of the trashing of the women from Clinton´s past.

If you go up against the libs, the press will punish you by maligning you and lying about you. Thanks to the "moron majority" that surround us, this works pretty well to erase the facts that were brought forward at great cost.

Re #8, here´s that now-infamous shirtless pic. He sent it to several friends, including one who is a Seattle Times 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.

Agree, #4. Note how 0bama phrases his answers. He said that Susan Rice was sent by "the White House" to do the press conferences, yet she "had nothing to do with Benghazi" (again, 0bama´s words). Who in "the White House" sent her?

Court Upholds EPA Emission Standards

Washington - A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s emission standards for hazardous air pollutants from coal- and oil-fired power plants. In its ruling, the court rejected state and industry challenges to rules designed to clean up mercury, lead, arsenic and other dangerous air pollutants. The new regulations were designed to remove toxins from the air that contribute to respiratory illnesses, birth defects and developmental problems in children. Some industry groups have criticized the standards, saying the EPA was overstating the benefits. Industry groups argued it would cost billions of

You don´t have to go to the Griffith Observatory or other prime watching spot to view the first total lunar eclipse of 2014. Numerous "blood moon" video streams are available on the Web. The Griffith Observatory will be streaming the event live from the Zeiss dome beginning at 9:45 p.m. The Slooh Observatory in the Canary Islands will also be doing a live stream. NASA is also planning a live stream, with experts taking questions from viewers. For those who want to take in the event in person, Griffith Observatory decided to open its doors Monday (it´s usually closed). "We are expecting large crowds," the observatory said in a statement.

   

 



 
Chelsea Clinton open to run

Chelsea Clinton says in a new interview that she´s open to a run for a multitude of offices, from mayor of New York to the U.S. Senate. "I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives," Clinton told Fast Company. "If at some point that weren´t the case, and I didn´t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators -- and I'm lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know -- maybe then I'd have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer." The answer is pretty similar to a response Clinton, 34,

Even as the cost of prescription drugs has plummeted for many Americans, a small slice of the population is being asked to shoulder more and more of the cost of expensive treatments for diseases like cancer and hepatitis C, according to a report to be released on Tuesday by a major drug research firm. The findings echo the conclusions of two other reports released last week by major pharmacy benefit managers, which predicted that spending on so-called specialty drugs would continue to rise. The report, by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, also found that consumers’ use of health care — visits to the doctor,

Dozens of teenagers are now tweeting

One dumb teenager is easily excused — but the host of Twitter users currently tweeting bomb threats at major airlines is another story entirely. In case you’ve somehow missed this latest round of Internet idiocy, here’s what went down: Sunday night, a Dutch teenager identified only as “Sarah” infamously tweeted a threat at American Airlines. (“hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan. I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye,” she wrote. Hilarious!) She then promptly made the account private and insisted it was all a joke — “I’m so stupid, I’m scared,” she wrote at one point —

Accusation of FBI
spying stalls 9/11 hearing

Guantanamo Bay Navy Base, Cuba - A military judge abruptly recessed the first 9/11 trial hearing of the year Monday after defense lawyers accused the FBI in open court of trying to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant. If true, the lawyers argued, attorney-client confidentiality might be compromised in the case that seeks to put on trial and execute five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. At issue, in part, was the publication in January of prison camp musings by the alleged 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed,

Abuja, Nigeria - Bomb blasts ripped through a bus station in the suburbs of the Nigerian capital today in the largest single attack on Abuja since insurgents began violent operations in 2009. Authorities say 71 people were killed and 124 were injured in a strike on Nyanya Motor Park, a chaotic bus station where commuters board megabuses into the pristine city center for work less than 10 miles away. The blasts in Nigeria´s capital are a direct challenge to the government´s recent assurances that it has managed to contain Boko Haram, Nigeria's militant Islamist group, to the remote northeast of the country.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
