Security is too tight.
Why waste resources with a surgical strike when you can get the same reaction with a larger net?

You're still looking from a civilians perspective ie. "so what if a politician gets killed they're useless anyway".
Put yourself in the politicians shoes. They think that they are the country not the people. So kill one of them and they would call on ALL their resources to remedy the situation not just go on TV and talk about it. They would act like they should do in the case of civilians killed.
