Interesting observation: Almost the same could be said about Annie since Jeanne was freed.
Fair. Annie pulled a lot of people into the Jeanne situation. Of course, she told them all she knew about it, let them provide input to the plan, etc. She certainly didn't expect Andrew to get hurt! But then, nobody did - we know what was going on in Jeanne's head but nobody in the Scooby gang did. Not before, during, or after. But still, you certainly have a point. Red was rude about it afterwards but not entirely incorrect. Not that she's a model of maturity either.
I think of that whole situation as a powerful but young girl figuring out how to get something done with the help of her friends, than an old, cynical, possibly very evil manipulator trying to lie, cheat and steal his way into more power. I hesitate to mention it because it could be turned around as well, but her motives were certainly good - she wanted to save a spirit that was unjustly imprisoned and unable to go to her rest. She ended up succeeding at that, and freed the elven lover as well for bonus karma points!
If there was manipulation going on in that whole thing, I have to point at the psychopomps, not at Annie.
Oh, I am sure Aata is convinced his own motives are good as well.
