Secret services cook only in water. The Federal Office for the Defense of the Constitution may have been surprised to see the seriousness of the Cologne Executive Court’s opposition to its approach to the AFT classification. Not doing as usual?
Officially, inquiries have not been answered, but unfortunately not everything can be done if the media thanks for the good contacts.

In early March, the central office was able to hear, see and read everywhere that it should be protected as a small state secret by a fixed promise, at least not yet announced: that the Rogue Party carries with it a suspicious case of extremist attempts.
But the old trick did not work this time. The third chapter proved cautious and failed against the protection of the Constitution, which was in principle barbaric; If the message is not even calculated to be leaked.
The Home Minister has full responsibility
The Federal Office used its legal mission to exert political influence, i.e. was caught from behind. Unfortunately, such a move confirms Afti’s central allegations that he wants to use the protection of the Constitution against them as a tool.
That is the real problem with the Union Home Minister taking full responsibility.
It is therefore logical that there would be no appeal against the Cologne decision. Further action needs to be taken to clarify where the leaks were and why they did so little to seal them with Horst Seehofer and the constitutional defense leader Thomas Haldenwang. In other words, the continuation of embarrassment.
It is understandable that those involved in the government side wanted to save themselves. In addition, Afty was expected to dominate the second and, in this case, the last event as well. We now have to wait and see what the Cologne Executive Court will decide on the parallel emergency measures related to the classification. At least for now it is clear: Afti’s intelligence monitoring by Constitutional Security is not a successful success. This event should be a warning to the central government and the parties that support it.
