Amnesty International Error?

Amnesty International recently suspended the head of their gender unit, Gita Sahgal, for criticizing the organizations partnership with a prominent Taliban supporter. Granted Moazzam Begg is very active in the fight against Gitmo detentions, including Canadian teen Omar Khadr.  However I think they have made a serious judgement error here. An organisation like Amnesty is not serving the interests anyones rights by associating themselves with Taliban supporters and have suffered long term damage to their brand by acting this way.
