FOR YOUR EYES ONLY – 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 Includes a variety of critical issues such as doubts about Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal plans, overview of the China Threat, Team Biden threatens Russia, U.S. and South Korea working to improve anti-missile sites in South Korea amid mutual threats between U.S. and North Korea, and the weeks update on Special Operations Forces (SOF).

Plus – the huge hole in America’s cyber defenses, and Biden’s plans to protect the US power grid from hackers.

Time for Joe to go before multiple enemies begin nuking the USA. He and Harris are two worthless politicians. Joe is only in the oval office to be able to indulge in more play to pay.. to further enrich the Biden Grifter Clan at taxpayer expense. When will the Senate and the congress grow a pair and begin the removal before 10 million illegals arrive and joe runs out of luxury hotels to put them in?.
