Perhaps he puts out tons of different possible plans through people he suspects of being funnels for information to his enemies, so they have to do the painstaking work of trying to figure out what he's actually planning.

And he gets to isolate the people he now KNOWS to be gossips from the real information. Double win!

Oh, definitely. A good example of this involves a certainly dwarfish character in George RR Martin's A Clash of Kings.
