Cheney, Rumsfeld and Their Circle - Duped by Iran?

I can't decide which of these two paragraphs is more troubling.

A top aide to then-secretary of defense Donald H. Rumsfeld, however, shut down the 2003 investigation into the Pentagon officials' activities after only a month, and the Defense Department's top brass never followed up on the investigators' recommendation for a more thorough investigation, the Senate report said.

The revelation raises questions about whether Iran may have used a small cabal of officials in the Pentagon and in Vice President Dick Cheney's office to feed bogus intelligence on Iraq and Iran to senior policymakers in the Bush administration who were eager to oust the Iraqi dictator.

Is it worse to be a tool of the mullahs that Bush and Co. see as irrational and bent on destroying the world, or is it worse to cover up the possibility that senior US officials are being used by that crowd? Hmmm.
