During World War II the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had general charge of the investigations of all violations of Federal laws, with the exception of those matters that were specifically assigned by legislative enactment or otherwise to some other Federal investigative body. During the war the FBI directed the greater part of its attention toward internal security problems. The agency also extended its activities during the war to many Latin America countries by sending liaison agents to work with the police and intelligence forces of those countries. (Note 28)
