In a story that has been mostly overlooked in the media, the U.S. secured the release of U.S. citizen Amer Fakhoury from custody without charge in Lebanon.

You can read all about the coup at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, but the relevance from a financial standpoint is that Hezbollah opposed Fakhoury’s release and evidently was angling to get one of its financiers imprisoned in the U.S. exchanged for Fakhoury. Thank goodness that deal never happened…
