I don't know how anyone can trust Juliet--her explanations, her actions, her motives--if I were on that island, I wouldn't believe anything she said or did once I knew she lied/omitted information about anything. I understand the other characters' need to feel grounded during all this time-shiftiness, and the desire to trust the people going through the same thing as them, but really? Sawyer has oscillated between trying to kill her and trying to save her life. She's clearly not going to give up any information she doesn't want to.

But as a viewer, I love her character. Just like Ben can be both manipulating and earnest--wanting to slap him one minute but my heart breaking when he watches Alex die--I love watching what kind of mind-contortions Juliet will pull. I just wish the other characters would smarten up.

the funny thing is that I don't trust her worth a crap, but in this instance, it didn't seem like there was any manipulation going on. But that was just my view on it.
