It would probably add Tampering with evidence to the list of charges.
And remove all possibility of ever having an "I remember" the password
moment.

I'm not familiar with PGP...does it provide for Plausible
Deniability?

It does not.


What True Crypt needs is a kill phrase.  You give someone that phrase
(or
type it in yourself) and it just starts a military format or adds
another
layer of encryption with a randomly generated pass phrase.

Or would that not work?
