As has been shown by quite a few of the current hearings with CEOs (or even our current Attorney General) on the carpet for various offenses, being "clueless" as you call it seems to be in fact a perfect condition to be in. An almost perfect defense. :)
Claim you are merely clueless, and it drags out the discussions forever and ever, as no one apparently knows exactly what is actually going on. See the news today, and even Allen Stanford (awaiting trial on his Ponzi scheme) is now claiming that same thing. :)
"I was beat up in prison, got bonked on the head, and cannot remember a single thing about what happened in the past."
It all happens purely by accident.. Whether it is giving guns to drug cartels, running a Ponzi scheme, or prioritizing search content.
"It must be fairies or little green men implementing it all at night, when it is dark. They were just nice enough to let me profit on their actions."
"I am clueless" is the step right before claiming your (US) fifth amendment rights.
