Comments: Woods Apology

Pay attention Durbin....to a real apology.

Unlike Durbin, this guy doesn't even have to apologize in my book. The simple explanation of "I had to say that drek or the bastards were going to cut off my head, but I didn't mean a word of it" is plenty enough for me.

I also appreciated that apology. The government couldn't answer the demands, because by doing so they would have put every Australian (and other foreigners) in Iraq in graver danger of kidnapping. The apology acknowledges that they acted rightly.

As an aside, Wood upset a lot of people in Australia by announcing just after that apology that he was probably going to head back to Iraq because 'the money is really good'. (Seriously, what is his life worth to him?!) His family (who were ready to hock their homes and lives to pay ransom for him) were less than impressed, as was the public in general. He has since changed his mind.
