Germany To Partially Disband Its KSK Anti-Terrorism Squad Over Far-Right Extremism Allegations

German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer plans on restructuring the country’s Bundeswehr’s Special Forces Command (KSK), due to allegations that far-right extremism was brewing within its ranks, German media reported.

According to newspaper Die Welt, Kramp-Karrenbauer will announce structural reforms of the KSK unit, which will include the dissolution of one of its four combat companies. Approximately 70 soldiers would be affected by the changes.

The KSK has been part of Germany’s army since 1996, and it focuses on anti-terrorism operations and hostage rescues from hostile areas.

The KSK has “become partially independent” from the chain of command and developed a “toxic leadership culture,” Kramp-Karrenbauer told the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper.

The minister set up a working group in May to examine the problem, and the group presented a report on its findings on June 30th.

The KSK “cannot continue to exist in its current form” and must be “better integrated into the Bundeswehr [German army]”, said the report, seen by the AFP news agency.

One of the force’s four companies, where extremism is said to be the most rife, will be dissolved and not replaced, the minister said.

“Anyone who turns out to be a right-wing extremist has no place in the Bundeswehr and must leave it,” she said.

KSK operations will be moved to other units as far as possible, and the force will not take part in international exercises and missions until further notice.

A report by Germany’s Military Counterintelligence Service (MAD) in January revealed that 500 soldiers in the German military were being investigated for right-wing extremism.

MAD noted that 20 of the suspected right-wing extremism cases currently being processed were within the KSK, which, in relation to the number of personnel, was five times as many as in the rest of the Bundeswehr.

According to Kramp-Karrenbauer the latest findings related to the KSK include the disappearance of 48,000 rounds of ammunition and 62 kilograms of explosives. She described this as “disturbing” and “alarming.”

The KSK troops face the real results of the failed German “multi-kulti” experiment and it is no surprise that some of them are adopting more right-wing ideology, even to an extreme.

Another question stands, is there any realistic expectation that any neo-liberal activists would join squads that would combat terrorists?

    Increible take from the author on the bottom line. So this wise man concludes that right-wing extremism and even neo-nazism are both expected and forgivable,while no alternative ideology exists on Earth pther than these scum to combat terrorism ? All Hail the Reich because migrants are bad ? what a pile a trash. I’m done with this site.

          I am not a Nazi because that was a german movement and I’m not german but I do sympathize with the movement and strongly belive we would be much better had they won. If you cannot beat your prejudice about that I understand but hope at least you can check the vid I put in the other comment

      ” Now crawl back to your Nazi hole, “columnist”, ”

      Drop the NAZI shtick , they’ve been gone for close to a century. Its played out and cliche at this point. The only Nazis left are the ones in your head.

      1. gryzor84 says:

        I’ll drop the Nazi shtick when they drop their nostalgia for it. Living in denial won’t ever make you right. The only world where this ideology is entirely gone is in your head. And the specific part you quoted was a voluntary jab obviously,to mirror the author’s overly simplistic take on the issue.

    So it’s ok to be an extremist but not right-wing.

      A valid question.

    The KSK is one of the few combat-tested and combat-ready units of the Bundeswehr. Personally, I think it is objectively wrong to dissolve it. However, since it is being used by the current government all over the world in the service of transatlantic expansion and the preservation of NATO’s power, it might as well be dissolved. The KSK is very active in Afghanistan, it is accountable only to the government and is subject to secrecy. Years ago there were reports of executions of prisoners, and a general who threatened politicians with death in a letter had much less media coverage than now a farewell party with pig heads cut off and Hitler salutes.
