History ?

"The best example is probably when Afghanistan's .af was handed over to the country's US-run transitional government when America invaded the country in retaliation for the Taliban government refusing to hand over Osama bin Laden."

Pretty sure that the Afghan government offered ObL up on a plate in preference to being subjected to "shock and awe". Hardly surprising, even for a bunch of statue demolishing nutcases. Even they were not so foolish as to ignore recent examples of US government lead mass incineration, as demonstrated in Iraq.

I've no sympathy for ANY of the above named nutjobs, none whatsoever, but I think it's generally a good idea to try to keep history factual, rather than merely convenient.
