But asked whether the Taliban were ready to hand over Bin Laden, he said: "This is a later thing, we cannot take any step that hurts our Islamic or Afghan dignity."

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.
