Read this for more in-depth information ;) :

Some would call "Section 31", the Federation secret police, a rogue agency, or a spy organization that operates with few rules or oversight.

:p ;) :D :cool:

Yep. Except, they've had a couple of centuries to get themselves entrenched, they're a lot better at staying covert when they want to, and they don't answer to anyone. I mean, up until the end of season 6 the NID at least gave lip service to answering to the Pres. Sec 31 has no such need, and hasn't in a long time.
