On September 21, 2001, “the Voice of America radio network interviewed [Taliban leader] Mullah [Mohammad] Omar. When the interviewer asked if bin Laden would be handed over to the United States, the Taliban leader put the issue in the most cosmic of terms: ‘We cannot do that. If we did, it means we are not Muslims; that Islam is finished.’ ”
