Recently Mike Rivero, the normally reliable operator of whatreallyhappened.com, posted the following comment underneath a link on his main page:
Here is more evidence that Popular Mechanics overlooked in its "hit piece" on those who doubt the official story. PHOTOGRAPHS taken of the impact holes in the towers clearly show people walking around and gazing out. This directly contradicts the official story (cited as holy writ by Popular Mechanics) of a raging inferno able to melt steel.
This is not a distortion or a mistake. It is an outright lie as proven by what PM actually said:
Jet fuel burns at 800° to 1500°F, not hot enough to melt steel (2750°F). However, experts agree that for the towers to collapse, their steel frames didn't need to melt, they just had to lose some of their structural strength--and that required exposure to much less heat
Mike refused to publish an e-mail pointing this out on his letters page.
"You are attacking a straw man. They never endorsed your fictional version of the official story."

concerning this outright fabrication. Pass along to other forums. Get the truth out. Mike is so wedded to his theories that he will lie to the public rather than correct himself.
