My take?

None of the actors can be taken at face value, particularly on a story with obvious national security implications. That said, I have a bit more confidence in the statements of Apple and Bloomberg than the others (even if they do contradict each other).

And let's not forget that the US was caught engaging in this sort of thing with Cisco equipment being shipped to the middle east, so we also can't rule out that the devices were installed, but it was done by or on the behalf of the US government.

So, my take is simple -- we don't have enough information to make any kind of judgement about who did what, if anything, here.
