I believe Ben COULD be part of the O6. I know he would have to be on the manifest, but how about this as a theory...
Ben takes the name of someone that was on the manifest but doesn't have any family or friends. That could be his way to get off the island so he could go after the people that he wants to kill back in "normal" time.
