This interview in Yale360 with Jeffrey Gettleman talks about his recent report in The New York Times that brutal armed groups in Africa (including African armies) are slaughtering thousands of elephants for their ivory tusks in order to sustain their militia and conflicts. In it, he raises the question of whether the United States should be working with these military groups or instead should use its position as an ally to maybe address some of these abuses.  See: http://e360.yale.edu/feature/shining_a_bright_light_on_africas_elephant_slaughter/2575/#.UFx7s0lMklk.twitter
