Mission Accomplished

So Iggy got to talk to "the One"... and this is what he decides to go with?

-- OTTAWA -- Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff said Thursday he raised the case of Canadian Omar Khadr in his meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama at Ottawa International Airport.

Ignatieff told CBC News that Obama was "glad to know" 'Canadian parties' were concerned about Khadr, the only Westerner remaining in detention at the U.S. Naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Canadian parties, huh? Who exactly is Michael Ignatieff speaking for here?

Hang on... did Iggy really say "parties"? Maybe not...
The president indicated he "was glad to know that 'the Canadian party' is concerned about Mr. Khadr," Ignatieff said.
Sure, the uh... Canadian party.

You know... the party that wants Omar Khadr back.

TALKING TO ACTUAL CANADIANS: You know, the ones...

...who haven't been outta the country for decades.
"Should the prime minister seek Omar Khadr's return to Canada?"
