Asked about his treatment, Denton responded—contrary to his thin and haggard appearance:

“I get adequate food and adequate clothing and medical care when I require it.”

Asked about his views on the actions of the U.S. government, he said:

“I don’t know what is happening, but whatever the position of my government is, I support it—fully. Whatever the position of my government is, I believe in it—yes sir. I’m a member of that government and it is my job to support it, and I will as long as I live.”
