“PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd has been caught on film saluting US president George W Bush – but he says the incident was just a joke.
Cameras caught the gesture as world leaders gathered in Bucharest for talks on NATO’s involvement in Afghanistan.
Mr Rudd is seen saluting the US president in acknowledgment, bringing to mind Mr Bush’s description of former prime minister John Howard as his “deputy sheriff”.
But asked about the moment later, Mr Rudd laughed out loud and said it was “a joke”.”
