Bruce Fein பற்றிய சிறு அறிமுகம்
Bruce Fein is a lawyer in the United States who specializes in constitutional and international law. He received his degree in law from Harvard Law School in 1972.
Under President Ronald Reagan, Fein served as an associate deputy attorney general from 1981 to 1982 and as general counsel to the Federal Communications Commission. In 1987, he served as the minority (minority party) research director of the committee in the United States House of Representatives that investigated the Iran-Contra Affair. Fein has authored numerous articles on constitutional issues for The Washington Times, Slate.com, The New York Times, Legal Times, and is considered an authority on civil liberties. He has also worked for the American Enterprise Institute and the Heritage Foundation, both conservative think tanks, as an analyst and commentator.
In March 2007, he founded the American Freedom Agenda with Bob Barr, David Keene and Richard Viguerie. Notable published writings by Fein include articles advocating the impeachment of former U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and George W Bush and former U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney.
Fein recently has been hired to assist as a representative of Tamils Against Genocide to protect Tamils in Sri Lanka. Tamils Against Genocide seeks to obtain United States or international indictments against three United States citizens or green card holders currently serving in the Government of Sri Lanka. The charges are complicity in genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, including torture and extrajudicial killings against Sri Lanka’s civilian Tamil population. Comparing the situation to that of Kosovo, Fein has voiced support for the right of the Tamils of the island to self determination and the right to the formation of a separate state, Tamil Eelam, to safeguard the community and its cultural and historical identity. He has also called for a Tamil statehood referendum under the United Nations on the issue. The government of Sri Lanka has taken notice of these activities and expressed its discontent.
On September 2, 2008, Fein addressed Ron Paul's "Rally For The Republic," an event sponsored by the Campaign for Liberty in Minneapolis. He offered a critique of the Bush administration's interventionist positions and advocated a more non-interventionist foreign policy. Fein also harshly criticized the unconstitutional "anti-terror" policies of the Bush White House, including warrantless wiretapping and indefinite detention of alleged terror suspects.
