Default Republican senator Georgia Saxby Chambliss' words

Hi could you help me with a question?

Several days ago republican senator from GEorgia Saxby Chambliss said

If we were to capture some of the benghazi terrorists, who we know today are running free, what are we going to do with them?

In English the protasis should be followed strictly in tense by the apodosis; then shouldn't 'are' in 'are we' have been 'would be'?
