reactions to A VERY HEAVY AGENDA
“It’s a public service. And it’s a damning indictment of how a small group of neocons tricked, cajoled, and frightened an entire country into declaring endless war against an enemy we neither understood nor could even identify.” – John Kiriakou [former CIA official and torture whistleblower]
“Without doubt it is the best documentary I have watched – on any subject – in years” – Tom Secker [spyculture.com]
“one of the most important documentaries in circulation at the moment with relevance to the extremely dangerous drumbeat and buildup to major war” – Joanne Leon [shadowproof.org]
”completely mind-blowing documentary about neocon ideologues and their bipartisan destructive influence” – Max Blumenthal [Author of Goliath & The 51 Day War]
“shows how the smarter neocons were able to escape accountability for engineering the Iraq War and slither their way back into positions of power” – Daniel Wright [shadowproof.org]
………Post-9/11, the War on Terror had outlived its usefulness. The minds behind the think tanks that drive America’s interventionist foreign policy decided that the U.S. needed a new enemy, so they chose an old one — Russia………
A VERY HEAVY AGENDA:
Maintaining the World Order
While stage managing the American empire has undoubtedly proved to be a more difficult task now than in the bipolar world of the cold war era, it is not for lack of greed or hubris that the neoconservatives and others continue to sell their vision. Did they create these ideas because they truly believe in America’s right to be the dominant force in the world? Or, do these ideas help sell weapons and control resources like oil and rare minerals? When you take stock of the mindset of people who not only have access to the nexuses of power, but who trade in forming and widely disseminating arguments that justify bringing America closer to a potential nuclear confrontation with Russia, it shows something more plainly Machiavellian at work, with an aim ultimately much more sinister than simply spin.
