- Tip: Navigate with your left and right arrow keys1The Torrid DetailsYou've probably heard the details before, but here's a quick summary: Head of the CIA and respected retired general, David Petraeus, had an affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. Broadwell, having heard the advice that "If he cheats on his wife, he'll cheat on you," grew jealous of Petraeus's relationship with Tampa socialite Jill Kelley, and sent Kelley emails warning her to back off. Kelley asked her friend, FBI Agent Fred Humphries, to investigate the emails. His interest in the investigation was so intense that his supervisors pulled him off the case. During the FBI's investigation, flirtatious emails between Kelley and General John Allen were also uncovered.The AftermathFrustrated with his supervisors' handling of the e-mail investigation, Humphries went to a Republican Congressman about the case, which led to all of the above information becoming public and embarrassment for pretty much everyone involved. Petraeus has resigned from the CIA. Broadwell has had her security clearance revoked and computers that had classified documents on them have been removed from her home. Allen has had his promotion put on hold. Kelley has called 911 and requested diplomatic protection (she was appointed an honorary consul by South Korea, which is now reviewing that appointment). And Agent Humphries, the man who made sure this would all be public knowledge, will forever be known as Shirtless FBI Agent.l< << PREV 1 of 13 NEXT >>
