Mr. Englehardt remembers the man who asked, "What would the 'sole superpower' look like as a bankrupt country?" Mr. Clemons recalls the man who argued "that American democracy is lost, that the republic has been destroyed by an embrace of empire."

UPDATE: An article of his from "September 30, 2001, just 3 weeks after the 9/11 attacks" — The Lessons of Blowback.
