M.N.: This observation is astute, original, professional, and I think, it very well might be correct. Explanation and hypothesis: both “MAGA” and “Al Qaeda” stem from the same source and have the same parents, that is why they look like siblings. We may call this interesting family by the variety of different names: KGB, GRU, FSB, etc., etc., but the essence of its nature manifested by the observed signs points in a certain direction: German Military Intelligence; the New Abwehr. The General has a good military sense of smell. And he himself might have been one of their targets too.
