Plus he was a Thalmor "asset" for a time, and while that is no longer the case at the time of the Skyrim civil war, his hatred for what the Thalmor did to him may be twisting his logic.

Speaking of the civil war, I wonder what the canonical outcome of that will be in TES 6? It would be somewhat difficult for them to take the "Sod it, we'll have all possible outcomes be true at the same time" option that they did with Daggerfall.
