New Green MP Paul Manly denies links to 9/11 truther movement after comments resurface

Green Party MP-elect Paul Manly openly questioned the “corporate media’s” coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and whether there is additional evidence that would reveal a different explanation for the attacks.

Global News has obtained audio from two interviews Manly did in 2007 and 2011 on the Unbought and Unbossed podcast hosted by conspiracy theorist Raymond Geisler. In those interviews, Manly says if you “speak up on certain issues” you open yourself up to attack.

“If you come out with a statement that says it’s all bunk, they’re going to take that one 15-second clip and they’re going to deride you with it and then discredit you in the eyes of the Canadian public,” Manly said in the 2007 interview.

Manly told Global News he was skeptical about the United States’ claims that Hussein, the former Iraqi president, was involved in the attacks.

Supporters of the 9/11 truth movement dispute the commonly accepted account that Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airliners and crashed them into the Pentagon and New York’s World Trade Centre towers, which collapsed as a result of those crashes.

The group suggests a cover-up by the United States government. Some of the truth organizations assert that there is evidence that individuals within the government may have been either responsible for or knowingly complicit in the attacks.

Earlier this month, Manly became just the second Green Party candidate to win a seat in Ottawa when he clinched the Nanaimo-Ladysmith byelection with 15,302 votes.
