Is Mini Bush going to make Wajid Khan give up his dual citizenship?

Wajid Khan, Mini Bush's recently brought into the Conservative fold guy on foreign affairs has dual citizenship with Pakistan. Since dual citizenship is a no-no for Stephane Dion, I assume it's also frowned upon for Khan, Harper's special adviser on affairs in the Middle East and Afghanistan. Being charged with advising Canada's New Government on such delicate foreign policy issues requires that there be no confused loyalties. Let's take the word of foot soldier Ezra Levant on this:
When it comes to making decisions about the war on terror, and Canada's role in Afghanistan, will Dion be unduly influenced by France, a country that has taken up the role of lawyer and arms dealer for every terrorist state in the world, even defending Saddam Hussein until the eve of his overthrow?
Insert "Khan" for Dion and "Pakistan" for France. I'm sure you'll agree, Ezra, that the apparent conflict of interest here is unacceptable?

I look forward to hearing about Khan's renunciation of his Pakistani citizenship. I'm sure Mini Bush and his foot soldiers will get right on this.
