The official government narrative of 9/11 is “uncertain” but Osama Bin Laden was likely involved, Princeton University professor Dr. Cornel West said while speaking at the Million Muslim March in Washington D.C. on Wednesday.

West made the response in a video interview with Capitol City Project reporter Joe Schoffstall, after being asked about whether he thought 9/11 was an inside job.

“I just don’t know," he said. "My hunch is that I think Bin Laden certainly had something to do with it. I just try to listen and raise questions and allow them [9/11 truthers] to engage in their investigation but I haven’t spent as much time as they have."

"At this point I’m still uncertain," he added. "I think there might be a possibility but my hunch is that with Bin Laden’s definitive investment, he must of had something to do with it.”

However, West said he sympathizes with the 9/11 Truth Movement’s “distrust in government” adding “I have that distrust too.”

When questioned about the news network Fox News, West responded they need to “quit lying, tell the truth, tell the about poor people, tell the truth about working people, tell the truth.”

He added that Fox News sees "the world through the lens of Wall Street, through the lens of the well-to-do.”
