Genya was a misguided fool is what he was, I think they were quite clear on that. Komei indulged him by giving him so much power within BF because it would further their cause, knowing full well what the ultimate outcome would be beforehand, he wasn't the BF strategist without good reason. Everything was Just As Planned.
And Alberto made it quite clear he didn't go to the "good" side. Opposing Genya and siding with the IPO were two entirely different things.
