But the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War, and President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society programs greatly expanded the role of the federal government. George W. Bush’s War on Terror has also expanded and redefined the role of the federal government and has necessitated the creation of new organizations, such as the Department of Homeland Security. Cabinet Departments The executive office consists of fifteen departments, as shown by the table on the next page. Each department is headed by a secretary.
