Seems to me they dont want to complicate the issue with foreigners or overseas strikes, their first priority is to introduce a bill which no decent congressman could have any reason to vote against. If anyone is stupid enough to vote against it, that vote can be used against them next time they are up for election. Its a common sense bill that should pass easily while providing political ammo for those running against congressman who vote against it...because you know there will be a few neocons and neoliberals who vote against it and dont realize the danger of doing so. Now if only they can prevent stupid ammendments from being attached.
