FILE - In this April 11, 2011 file photo, Ambassador Chris Stevens is seen in Benghazi, Libya. Administration officials say the White House has put special operations strike forces on standby and moved drones into the skies above Africa, ready to hit targets from Libya to Mali _ if U.S. investigators can find the al-Qaida-linked group responsible for the death of the U.S. ambassador in Libya. But U.S. officials say the administration is weighing whether the short-term payoff would be worth the risk that such strikes would be ineffective and rile governments in the region.
