Hostage Wood Apologizes To Bush, Howard

CNN: Wood: Rescue shows policy working -- The Australian hostage held captive for nearly seven weeks in Iraq before being freed last week has said his rescue by Iraqi troops is a sign that U.S. and Australian policies are working.
The 64-year-old engineer also apologized to U.S. President George W. Bush and Australian Prime Minister John Howard for statements he made at gunpoint in a DVD his captors released to the news media. On the DVD, Wood pleaded for Australian, U.S. and British troops to withdraw from Iraq.
