Then there's the time he informed on an insurgent group in Chad to the CIA, apparently fully aware that he was helping them carve up the country for resources:
'Chad was well-known for its Zaghawas insurgents. They'd made a number of attacks on people over the previous year, so I made a point of plotting the locations of all the attacks on a map. Having done so, I could see a pattern emerging. They were coming into the CAR down the river and then attacking people along the roads either side, morning and evening, but always leaving themselves plenty of time to escape back the way they'd come.
My questions soon attracted the attention of a certain US intelligence agency. After all my hard work plotting and planning, I was called in to the US Embassy to meet with the CIA's head of station, who wanted to know what I'd discovered. In the process of tracking down the intelligence I needed to draw conclusions about the best time for us to travel and avoid the Zaghawas, I'd been asking questions all over town, so I guess the CIA soon got to hear about it - intelligence is its business after all, and there's a massive interest in that part of Africa due to Zaire's vast untapped mineral wealth. The French had a huge embassy there, too. Back then, Africa was a great big chessboard where the Cold War was played out.' - from the autobiography, 'My Outdoor Life', chapter 9, 'Out of Africa' - https://www.google.co.uk/books/edition/My_Outdoor_Life/6SYd20B2GuQC?hl=en&gbpv=1
Too much respect for authority, I think...
