Today’s PDB – China, Africa, SOCOM, and Homeland Security

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY – Today’s PDB includes critical issues in the Indo-Pacific region, Homeland Security and National Guard in DC, SOCOM, Military Robotics and AI Technology, the Balkans and Middle East, and a CIA base in North Africa.

With the multitude of national security and intelligence topics that American Defense News (ADN) cannot adequately cover every day – we are providing our readers a PDB – not the President’s Daily Brief, but almost as good – Paul’s Daily Briefing.
