You can't shoot armed terrorists on the high seas!
You have to capture them (at great risk to our military personel), bring them back here (at great expense) give them a fair trial (also at great expense) & then imprison them for 30 years (at huge expense). But hey, it keeps the lawyers employed, don't it?
