FOR YOUR EYES ONLY – Today’s PDB is heavy on China Threat issues, such as the QUAD, US-Japan defense ties, and will a Taiwan crisis mark the end of the American ‘empire’? Also included is intelligence on Russian information warfare efforts to discredit US COVID-19 vaccines, and covert action, espionage, and the intelligence contest in cyberspace.
Also, the U.S. and South Korea are monitoring North Korean rocket deployments to the border. Plus, top Armed Services Republican backs a National Guard quick reaction force for DC.
And former Trump National Security Advisor General H.R. McMaster says it’s time to end the delusion about America’s longest war in Afghanistan.
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.
TODAY’S PDB HIGHLIGHTS:
North Korea Threat
Intelligence and Unconventional Warfare
