Bin Laden's family contacts PR firm

NEW YORK: Relatives of Osama bin Laden are reportedly looking for

an agency to help them wage a PR campaign distancing them from the

suspected architect of the September 11 terrorist attacks. Steve

Goldstein and his firm, Attention America, were approached by one of bin

Laden's brothers last week.

An observant Jew who describes himself as pro-Israel, the former Capitol

Hill staffer and campaign manager for Sen. John Corzine (D-NJ) thinks he

was approached by bin Laden's family because of his religious and

political stance. He went directly to the FBI following the meeting.

The Binladen family claims to have disinherited Osama years ago. The

brother who approached Goldstein claims to have met Osama bin Laden only

a handful of times.
