What bothered me was in Garak's dialogue with Sisko he says something to the effect that "We've saved the Alpha Quadrant, and all it cost was the lives of a criminal and a Romulan Senator, and the self-respect of one Starfleet officer."

Yeah, screw those totally innocent bodyguards you mentioned just ten minutes earlier.
Hey, if the senator died under their watch then they weren't very good body guards then, were they?
Indeed. Romulan politics would probably have called for the guards' execution if they had survived. Vreenak's death means they failed, therefore, Romulus would demand that they die as well.
