Other than becoming a real life Homeland storyline, there wasn't much to interest run-of-the-treadmill gays in the hetero affair scandal that lead to David Petraeus's resignation.
Until talk of a shirtless photo from an FBI agent involved in the investigation entered the picture, that is.
Check out the shirtless photo of FBI Agent Fred Humphries that has the whole world talking after the jump!
Now, thanks to the sleuths at the Seattle Times, the most famous scandalous shirtless photo since Kate Middleton's French vacation to hit headlines is finally online.
Ever since FBI agent Fred Humphries was revealed as the mysterious man behind the shirtless photo that was emailed to Jill Kelley, he maintained that it was a jokey kind of picture. Now that we get to see it, it does seem more like a punchline than a pickup. Humprhies apparently emailed the picture to more than just Kelley, adding some credit to his claims.
The Seattle Times, which profiled Agent Humphries in 2002, reports:
Humphries, 47, confirmed the photograph exists and was sent to Kelley and dozens of other friends and acquaintances in the fall of 2010, shortly after Humphries had transferred to the Tampa office from Guantánamo Bay, where he had been an FBI liaison to the CIA at the detention facility there.
Indeed, among his friends and associates, Humphries was known to send dumb-joke emails in which the punch line was provided by opening an attached photo.
A Seattle Times reporter was among those who received an email containing an attachment of the shirtless photo. The subject line read: "Which one is Fred?"
Was it worth the wait and hoopla?
