The military's top-secret Joint Special Operations Command has begun preparing "target packages" on militants suspected in the attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, according to The New York Times.

The detailed information in the packages could be used to kill or capture those who were complicit in the attack. Obama's available range of options  include: drone strikes; Special Operations raids like the one that killed Osama bin Laden; and joint missions with the Libyan authorities. All of these choices carry substantial political, diplomatic and physical risks. Administration officials say no decisions have been made on any potential targets.
