Daily Dump: Urban Breaching, The War In Kosovo, Continued Taliban Advance, Hatti and More in Today’s Reading

As part of the Cognitive Raider Initiative we at The Cognitive Warrior Project would like to put together a daily list of diverse articles that can easily be chosen from to play a part in developing a more mentally agile warfighter  that embraces the adaptation required for tomorrow’s battlefield. Our intent is to create a space where you can choose one or two articles a day (about 10 minutes) instead of mindlessly scrolling social media.

As a reminder: The Cognitive Warrior Project is a private media site, and it is not affiliated in any way with Special Operation Forces the Department of Defense or the U.S. Government. None of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, DoD or Space Force have endorsed, supported, directed, or participated in the creation of the content at this site, or in the creation of the site itself. It’s just a media site that happens to cover the U.S Military, DoD and other National Intelligence Assets.
