    The only thing he deserves is a bullet for his treason/espionage. So what if he doesn't get a blanket or is in solitary. They are probably worried that he might try to pass on more classified intel or hang himself.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I have no "complaints." I agree with some of the others; if he's a little chilly at night, I'm not going to lose any of my own sleep over it.

    I just turned up the thermostat and grabbed an extra blanket in honor of him.

    Solitary would likely be for his own safety, and to keep control of information.

    Off topic, but I think we found out the military had been wearing white gloves when they handled the Koran, and not flushed it.

    This is the guy you convict for passing classified intel. Leave Assauge alone, he did nothing illegal.

    You should have donated the blanket to a kid in Africa that doesn't have one.

    People have leaked classified information are always put into solitary confinement, and its for no other reason than they probably still know something secret that they could potentially leak to someone else if they had contact with other people. As cruel as it sounds its explained very well to you when you are given access to secret information, that there is a trust between you and the government as to how you will use that information and if you break that trust it is never never never extended in the slightest.

    The only way he could get out is if its decided he no longer knows anything classified which would mean everything he knows would have to be declassified, which is not the same as being leaked by the way. Even knowledge which is public can still be deemed classified if the government still wants to control access to that information.
