Bebe waited until he really needed some good PR. His rep is in the toilet, and so he played the Shalit card to his advantage. It could have been done years ago and everyone, including the Shalit family, knows this full well. Gilad was used by Bibi to polish up his tarnished image. Thank G-d for his release...shame on Netanyahu for prolonging the Shalit's agony for his own political benefit.
