Pentagon Seeking Potential Targets Behind Libya Attack

"The American military's top-secret Joint Special Operations Command is preparing detailed information that could be used to kill or capture some of the militants suspected in the attack last month in Libya that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans," the New York Times reports.

President Obama "has a range of options available -- including drone strikes, Special Operations raids like the one that killed Osama bin Laden; and joint missions with the Libyan authorities -- but all carry substantial political, diplomatic and physical risks. Administration officials say no decisions have been made on any potential targets."
