Is Adnan Hajj Two People?

At the Jawa Report, Dr. Rusty Shackleford suggests that discredited Al-Reuters photographer Adnan Hajj, and Issam Kobeisi, under whose name Reuters continues to sell photographs, may be one and the same person.

If you look through Kobeisi's photos, you find that they are very similar to Hajj's.

Of course, it's possible that this is nothing. That Reuters just attributed the photo to the wrong guy.

But, then again, why would a guy who has no problem photoshopping "missiles" into his pics have a problem with trying to collect two checks from Reuters?

Reuters admitted that the way photos were submitted from Beirut was pretty lax and, in response to the Hajj scandal, have changed their editorial process.

Filing drills have been tightened in Lebanon and only senior staff will now edit pictures from the Middle East on the Global Pictures Desk, with the final check undertaken by the Editor-in-Charge, Reuters said.
I hope I'm wrong.
