You did. But you didn't say why. Why should we accept this view over the one we have already accepted as canon? Kero's right, the Bureau as a whole is supposed to be made up of "the good guys" in this series. Even Regius, much as I loathe the guy, ultimately had the best interests of the people he was supposed to be protecting in mind when he started his career; it's just that he hit something of a slippery slope and crossed over into moral ambiguity when he teamed up with Jail, and in an idealistic series like Nanoha that's pretty much tantamount to becoming a villain.

So if the Bureau is as good as canon says it is, why should we accept the notion that the legitimate higher-ups are anything except pure and noble defenders of the innocent? That's what you haven't said yet.

Not you specifically, but anyone who holds the novel to be canon. Since I can't read Japanese or get my hands on a translated copy I wouldn't be able to use it as a source even if I wanted to tarnish the bureau's image for some bizarre reason, and since I don't I have no reason to bother in the first place.
