Wonder why such a person as DeGaulle would say that. Was Sartre regarded as a national treasure of some sort? I wonder what Sartre thought of it?

I don't want to hijack your thread, John, but my favorite memory about Sartre was when
he was arrested in the May 1968 strikes in France and arrested for civil disobedience.
President de Gaulle was then forced to step in and release Sartre, saying "you don't arrest Voltaire."
The New York Times, June 7, 1987
In the light of JJ's account of De Gaulle and looking at the OAS (see "JOACHIM JOESTEN How Kennedy was Killed" thread on what the OAS was/is in that context) apart from De Gaulle, Sartre was a target for them (the OAS). This is the tie in. The full story is no doubt interesting.
