Maybe I'm missing something, but why is it that Ben was so unwilling in Season 3 to let people to leave the Island? He was ecstatic to have Locke blow up the Galaga so Jack and Juliet couldn't leave, and in "Through the Looking Glass" Alex asked him why he just couldn't let the survivors leave, and he simply replied with "Because I can't." It is fairly obvious that the Oceanic Six leaving the Island caused a lot of chaos, and was possibly orchestrated by Jacob's nemesis, but Ben hasn't always appeared that omniscient towards these sort of things, and not in tune with the wants and needs of the Island, so what was his reason for not wanting them to ever leave the Island?
