I wouldn't be ok with the Taliban giving Bin Laden a trial.
A sham trial by the Taliban would not have been acceptable to me either.
However, extradition was a possibility worth pursuing. And my central point is the incredible fact that the Taliban offer to discuss extradition is unknown to most US elites-- even left-of-center R2P-lovin' peaceniks like RW! A genuine propaganda victory.
