Welcome to Lostpedia Answers. What would you like to know?

Good point. My guess is that Ben was manipulated by MIB/Smokey all along, including MIB tricking Ben into thinking that Ben could summon the smoke at will. It fits in with the multi-layered deceptions, like when Smokey appeared as Alex and ordered Ben to follow Flocke, who of course, was also secretly MIB/Smokey. Also, you could make the argument that Ben was never truly on Jacob's side. Ben threw around Jacob's name for years, but Jacob never actually talked to Ben. It would be like if a crooked President claimed that he was going to war because "it's what God wanted."  ;)
