Comments: Rahman Situation

Apparently, the guy has been released, possibly with an insanity defense being the reason.

So the question is, is this the better outcome, with Afganistan [very] slowly working its way towards a modern secular state? Or would it have been better to go in, guns blazing, and make clear certain parts of sharia are not going to be acceptable?

I'm tending towards option #2 myself, although I think that will probably lead to a direct confrontation with all of Islam, not just these tiny little branches.
