“…during the late November to early December [2002] time frame, two Afghan detainees were beaten to death with batons. When word reached CENTCOM [Central Command] on December 14, 2002, GEN [Tommy] Franks directed LTG [Lieutenant General] Dan McNeil, the commander on the ground in Afghanistan, to conduct a full investigation into the deaths.” [The 5th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
