NY Times leaks Superman's identity

By John Breneman

The White House today accused the New York Times of treason for leaking the identity of a key covert operative in America's war on terror -- Superman.

However, a spokesman for the Times claimed the information has been declassified since the 1950s, when the link between a certain mild-mannered newspaper reporter and the erstwhile Man of Steel was first made public to millions of TV viewers.

In a related development, the Daily Planet is reporting that Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lois Lane faces possible prison time for refusing to reveal her source in a story about Lex Luthor's efforts to obtain kryptonite yellow cake from Niger.

The administration says the Times report ruins its plan to have Superman fly in and fix the mess in Iraq. Clark Kent could not be reached for comment.
