Torture Tapes vs. Fraud On The Court

If you say "We have no secret prisons" and

...the judge therefore orders you preserve recordings of torture undertaken at the prison the judge knows about....

...and then you go "Well, we do have secret prisons and we destroyed THOSE tapes."

You cannot argue that the order didn't cover the secret prison tapes.

Because, you see, you got the limitation on the order by lying. That's a "Fraud On The Court".
