The Dirección General de Inteligencia (General Directorate of Intelligence, DGI, Department M, G-2) is one of multiple groups formed at the behest of the Castro regime as it transitioned from revolutionary force into a national government. The DGI was given purview over external threats, gathering foreign information, and influencing revolutionary policies abroad. Collaboration of the DGI leadership with Soviet intelligence and several paramilitary groups led them become a legitimate threat to the foreign policy of more powerful enemy nations. This intelligence service cobbled out of postwar necessity would subsequently employ thousands of agents and present one of the most enduring modern threats to non-Communist aligned intelligence organizations.
