Did China stage attack on disabled Olympics torch bearer?

Stories are flying around the blogosphere this week alleging that China, in an effort to create animosity toward Tibetan protestors, staged the attack on the Paralympian Jin Jing, who carried the Olympics torch in Paris. Jin Jing became a symbol of heroism in China for her efforts to protect the torch.

A report at Alex Jones' Infowars says that the man in the Tibetan flag head bandana pictured above was reportedly seen in other pictures carrying the red Communist China flag. The Big Lizards blog dissects the controversy and has information from some Chinese bloggers in Japan.

I blogged about this April 11 and included a link to video footage in which no one gets close enough to Jin Jing to attack her.
