I am going to say say they are both liars and it is possible both of them could have done it.Ben for reasons: Of hiding the island from the world as he truly knows the real potential of the island, and the power he gains from it.Widmore for reasons: He is the typical obsessive billionaire who will do anything to gain what's out of reach. The power, the mystique, the possibilities, for Widmore the sky is the limit.I Love Ben's character and want to believe that behind the crazy, manipulative schemer he solely wants to protect the Island.However, i am feeling that Ben is in fact behind the Plane dummy and the bodies. In the twisted logic that is Ben he would actually do such a thing to protect the Island and what he has there -- he is god to many!I think Jacob has been trapped or harnessed by Ben in the cabin, without the others knowing. (the circle of minerals)Ben was probably the true leader and Jacob and him Allies, but it went bad and Ben learnt to control him.When the Lostie's crashed they probably died or were dying but as we have seen over and over the Island and Jacob saved them. Jacob needs help as we have heard him ask for it. John Locke holds the faith and open mind to become the new leader of the Island (even though i cannot stand him as a character or actor)I still think Widmore is behind a lot of stuff and is as dangerous as we all believe. He will not stop until he has what he wants. But i also believe Ben is a match and they will battle to the end.As i have mentioned before in my post's a war is coming and sides will be taken and the oceanic 6 will take the wrong side in all the madness.I believe there will be a lot more deaths due to all of this, which is fine as there is a lot of people to cull from, and some deserve it, lol.
