Widmore warns Richard Alpert, Locke finds their camp

Richard Alpert unties Daniel Faraday's hands and tells him what happened to US military on the island. Richard says he gave the soldiers the chance to leave but they didn't so he was "forced" to kill them. Alpert says that he's taking his orders from someone else. Charles Widmore (Jones) comes running back to camp to tell Richard about Sawyer, Juliet and Locke. In one of the funniest moments of the episode, Widmore is calls Locke an old man and says "What you think he can track me? You think he knows this island better than I do?" It then cuts to Locke overlooking the camp with Juliet.

Juliet tells Locke that "Richard's always been here." When he asks how old Richard is she just says "old." Locke then leaves Sawyer and Juliet behind to go talk to Richard.

Is Jacob the person Richard answers to or is there a physical leader similar to Ben during this time? Why does Widmore know or thinks he knows the island so well and why is he there? And just how old is Richard?
