Freed Hostage Apologises to President Bush

After being freed by Iraqi and US troops, an Australian hostage, held for 47 days by Islamist terrorists, offered his apologies to President Bush, and Prime Minister Howard for having called for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq whilst he was in captivity.

Douglas Wood, an engineer of 64, said, "I actually believe that I am proof positive that the current policy of training the Iraqi army ... works because it was Iraqis that got me out," he said.

Prime Minister Howard welcomed the apology although he said that it obviously hadn't been sought.
