Is Obama Going to Let US Soldiers Go On Trial for Burning Korans?

This was a disturbing announcement from the Afghan government with relation to the Koran burning incident:

NATO officials promised to meet Afghan nation's demand of bringing to justice, through an open trial, those responsible for the incident and it was agreed that the perpetrators of the crime be brought to justice as soon as possible.

An open trial?  For burning pieces of paper?  Sure it was a mistake, but mistakes happen.  For our troops to risk their lives thousands of miles away and then to be thrown to the wolves when politically expedient is a travesty.  What's next, trials for female American soldiers for not wearing burkhas?
