Chief of Counterterrorism James Waters, two counter- terrorism lieutenants and a sergeant finally made it to war-torn Afghanistan earlier this month on what the NYPD said was a training mission for Afghan military and law enforcement.
But division Capt. Daniel Magee and Deputy Chief Scott Shanley were left behind. The two had been tossed off an Aug. 10 military charter to Afghanistan for drunkenness, leading Waters to abort that mission. An NYPD internal investigation followed.

A mystery that has troubled Belgium for over 30 years may be solved after a deathbed confession by a former police officer that he was one of the "Crazy Brabant Killers", who left 28 people dead in a bizarre string of robberies in the early 1980s.
Officials on Monday confirmed reports that detectives have been working on the new lead for months and were optimistic about finally identifying the group, also called the "Nivelles Gang". Its bloody, three-year spree has long fuelled conspiracy theories involving right-wing plots and official cover-ups during the era of the Cold War.
With members dubbed "The Giant" and "The Killer", a getaway driver known as "The Old Man", and possibly other accomplices, the gang terrorized towns in Brabant province around Brussels. They staged over a dozen raids, often on supermarkets, sometimes barely taking petty cash but gratuitously gunning down customers, staff, and even children.
