This Seems Consequential

There are reports that elements of the German Special Forces have been charged with plotting to kill a bunch of politicians, and take over the country. This would seem to be a very big and troubling deal.

From the Daily Mail:
Two-hundred elite soldiers who formed a covert neo-Nazi faction within Germany's equivalent of the SAS planned to butcher immigrants to the country.

They conspired to unleash chaos on what they code-named Day X when they planned to kill Green Party leader Claudia Roth, foreign minister Heiko Mass and ex-president Joachim Gauck.

English language sources are all U.K. tabloids at the moment and they seem to all be referencing this German Language article

Stay tuned.

Wait, what?  200 members of the KSK would equal to almost 20% of its' establishment.

Something does not mesh here...But we are talking about the military where one of its' officers falsely claimed to be a Syrian refugee...

2 Ok some definite oddities on this one:
-No mention of Merkel in the list they would go after? Going after the head of the country would seem to be a prerequisite of a coup. With her pro-immigrant sympathies, she would be a major impediment to the success of this operation, but they apparently didn't have plans for her but did for a foreign minister and a former President?
-"The warriors had planned Day X for when law and order collapsed - which they believed was "imminent”." - Yet nothing about what would cause the collapse of law and order.
-The timing of shutting this down just after the Kristallnacht remembrance, when everybody would naturally have the worst possible interpretation of this, is an... interesting coincidence.

Without the neo-nazi references, I might be tempted to wonder if this wasn't a military unit that had lost faith in it's government to respond to a crisis and making their own, unauthorized, contingency plans. Given that I've held the belief for quite a while that several EU countries (France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, etc.) would be hit by a mass revolt out of the Banileus that they no longer had the capability to suppress, some contingency plans wouldn't, necessarily, be a bad thing.

I'm definitely going to wait to hear more before I pass judgement on this one.

3 When I saw headlines about the elite Nazis plotting to kill the leadership, I thought people were celebrating the 1944 plot to assassinate Hitler. True story.
