US Central Command has named two one-star generals to oversee a complete investigation into the Oct. 3 AC-130 attack on a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanist?an, that killed dozens. They are: Air Force Brig. Gen. Robert Armfield, CENTCOM’s vice director of strategy, plans, and policy, and Army Brig. Gen. Sean Jenkins, the deputy director for operations at CENTCOM, Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said Monday. CENTCOM still has not finalized its preliminary report to determine who was killed in the strike. The report was initially expected in the days following the incident, but it has been delayed repeatedly because investigators are still working to identify remains of those killed, Davis said.
