One person's "red tape" is another's "reasonable safeguard"

Rep. Rogers (R-Mich.) as quoted here:
Individuals who would have been previously removed from the battlefield by U.S. counterterrorism operations for attacking or plotting to attack against U.S. interests remain free because of self-imposed red tape.
Translation: U.S. citizens who would have been previously assassinated without due process remain (at least temporarily) alive because of the widespread, justified outcry against targeted killings of U.S. citizens abroad.

"Removed from the battlefield." Nice. Like, by Arnold Schwarzenegger, on a ladder dangling from a helicopter.
