"A Very Heavy Agenda is a behind-the-scenes look at the neocon thinkers that fuel America's endless wars. The film is a chillingly honest account of how the neocons behind both Bush and Obama's foreign policy have shaped the 'new American century' over the last 15 years, told almost entirely in their own words via rarely seen TV footage. We'd highly recommend it." - Films For Action
 

Part 1: A Catalyzing Event  10.15.15

Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld were ubiquitous in the news media as they took every opportunity to market an aggressive preemptive war policy to America. But from where did their ideas originate? A tightly knit and eminently well placed group of neoconservative thought leaders, chief among them Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan.

Part 1 begins in the panicked weeks after 9/11, as Kagan et al. seized upon the hysteria surrounding the anthrax letter attacks to further shape America’s perception of reality, planting the seeds for endless future military engagements. George W. Bush may have been understandably perceived as an idiot, but watching these wonks and academics drive the ideological engine for his administration belies a much more sophisticated strategy.
