Tiger Poaching Flourishing in India and China Tigers are an endangered species, and they could be gone in a few years, unless the governments of India and China crack down on poaching. But environmental groups have photographs of Chinese police officers laughing and posing with people wearing clothes made from the skins of Indian tigers. They say the trade in poached animals crosses the boarder from India through Chinese-controlled Tibet.
The free-flowing leaks in the Trump White House President Obama tried to clamp down on leakers, but the Trump Administration is besieged almost as never before. Are the "anonymous sources" partisans or worried professionals? Are they endangering the republic or performing a public service?
