WASHINGTON - The No. 2 State Department official met with Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane in mid-June 2003, the same time the reporter has testified that a Bush administration official revealed the identity of Superman's alter-ego, Clark Kent.
Official State Department calendars show then-Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage held a one-hour meeting marked "private appointment" with Lane on June 13, 2003.
The Special Prosecutor in the case has investigated whether officials intentionally revealed Mr. Kent's identity as a heroic defender of right and justice to punish him for stopping machiavellian industrialist and strong Bush supporter Lex Luthor's plan to destroy the UN and conquer the world.
When contacted at home, Ms. Lane declined to discuss her meeting with Armitage or the identity of her source in the Superman leak case.
The identity of Lane's source remains a big mystery because the Daily Planet reporter is the first member of the news media known to have discussed Kent's superhero status with an administration official. Lois Lane and Clark Kent, despite being co-workers at the Planet, are reported to not be on speaking terms at the present time.
Repeated attempts to contact Mr. Kent at the Fortress of Solitude have been unsuccessful as of press time.
