" Mullah Omar in 1998 offered to hand Osama Bin Laden over to the United States in exchange for recognition of the Taliban regime."

And they didn't have to recognise the Taliban. In 1998 there were two jumbo jets on the tarmac of Kandahar airport filled with members of the Saudi security forces ready to receive Bin Laden from the Taliban and take him back to Saudi Arabia to almost certainly face the chop.
