I was leafing through some FBI files on French philosophers when a new
candidate for occupancy of the populous Grassy Knoll in Dallas leapt out
at me. To the massed ranks of the CIA, the Mafia, the KGB, Castro,
Hoover, and LBJ, we can now add: Jean-Paul Sartre. FBI and State
Department reports of the 1960s had drawn attention to Sartre’s
membership of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, of which Lee Harvey
Oswald was also a member.
