Classification 2: Neutrality Matters

Established in June of 1940, this classification covers investigations into violations of neutrality statues. The Neutrality Acts declare illegal such actions as conspiracy to injure the property of a foreign government, enlisting in a foreign service, organizing a military expedition from the United States against a country with which the U.S. is at peace, and arming vessels of any country to commit hostilities against a country with which the United States requires the licensing of all persons engaged in the manufacture, importation of arts, ammunition, or implements of war.
