This story's two years old, but you should read it anyway

At the height of the Hezbollah-Israel war almost exactly two years ago, McClatchy's Matt Schofield wrote about Samir Kuntar, the Lebanese killer that Israel released Wednesday in return for the remains of two Israeli soldiers whose capture July 12, 2006, touched off the 34-day conflict. This story was published July 22, 2006, but it's still worth your time to read it if you're curious about what took place in the Middle East today.
