A conspiracy theory is doing the rounds about the Woolwich attack, as an almost certainly doctored version of footage showing bloodied suspects, now appears with clean hands.
A YouTube clip, posted by user Antislaveboy, has been spliced with the original footage, called 'Woolwich false flag bullshit'
It suggests that the media has added a fake blood effect, and claims the fact there was little blood visible around the body shows that the whole tragic incident was a hoax.
Truth Frequency Radio said: "The world is all a stage.gma Call me jaded, cynical, skeptical or even out right crazy but this event has all of the same earmarks as the Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon bombings and so many recent events.
"The stage is a some-what well organized area, actors seem to be placed in strategic areas waiting for their cue and once again we see the remarkable absence of blood. The story is also full of anti-Islamic propaganda even going so far as to claim the 'perpetrator' yelled 'Allahu Ahkbar' just before beheading the man."
A further site named Beforeitsnews.com asks why there was "no blood surrounding the man despite reports that the two men 'hacked away at him like a piece of meat'?"
Many other commenters seem to agree. However, one voice of common sense, Jay Evans noted "It's just as easy to take off the "false" blood as it is to put it there!"
The video has however been exposed as a poorly doctored fraud: The conspiracy theorist's video compares clips shot by two camera from different angles, however The Sun has obtained the original footage from the angle which the videomakers claims to show no blood on the man's hands. In the original video the blood is clearly visible.
Others had previously pointed out that, in the video alleging their was no blood, London's famous public buses has turned from standard red to orange, as well as the 'no parking at any time' double red lines.
