If asked this about a month ago and never got any response, but again I was wonderong if any else had the impression that Charles Widmore knew who Desmond was long before he ever met him. He would have had to have a look at Daniel's diary at some point, and seen the notes about Desmond. But seeing how he was his father and atleast the Ellie's lover it seems likely to me....
