go off with military honors and that no sanctions be taken against them Whether the army accepted these conditions fully was doubt ful De Gaulle in demanding that the army bring the insur gents under control had called the rebel leaders liars and con spirators indicating they could expect little mercy from him If the letter of the law were followed Lagaillarde and Ortiz probably could be executed for treason having violently chal lenged the authority of the state and waged armed warfare against it But the insurgent leaders continued popularity with the French colonials in Al geria ruled out this extreme punishment
