Sidney Blumenthal's Introduction to General Boykin.

Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | The religious warrior of Abu Ghraib

Boykin was recommended to his position by his record in the elite Delta forces: he was a commander in the failed effort to rescue US hostages in Iran, had tracked drug lord Pablo Escobar in Colombia, had advised the gas attack on barricaded cultists at Waco, Texas, and had lost 18 men in Somalia trying to capture a warlord in the notorious Black Hawk Down fiasco of 1993.
My suspicion is that Boykin was driven insane by his unfathomable ineptitude.
