Why does Ben not recognize Sayid?

Hello, this is my first blog so I hope all goes well. :)

I've just finished watching 'He's Our You' and what I'm confused about is why Ben doesn't recognize Sayid in season 2? I'm pretty sure he'd remember the face of someone who shot him.

I might be missing something massive here, and I apologize in advance if this has already been answered.

Thanks, Tom.
