3 UFO's emerge from WTC buildings after second plane hit

Videotaped from CNN headline news. Please call me ASAP: it is very important!!! Yesturday I contacted FBI in Milwaukee Wisconsin and today here in Madison, but answer was: we don't investigate UFO's. Also I contacted CNN news in New-York city and Chicago, but it looks like they are not willing to move forward. If I don't hear from you soon I will try to do nessessary steps on my own. Hopefully you understand that it is not a joke Please call me at home 608-((number deleted)) or work 608-((number deleted)) I am a senior Research Assistant at University of Wisconsin Medical School. I have possible explanation what it could be. You can also e-mail me at ((e-address deleted)) or ((e-address deleted)) Sincerely, ((deleted))

((NUFORC Note: We have looked at many videos and still photos of the WTC attack, and we believe that none of the allegedly anomalous objects appears to us to be UFO-related. The tiny white object seen above Tower 1 at the time of the first impact appears to us to be a helicopter on the near side of the tower and resultant fireball, flying from left to right.

The fuzzy, indistinct object seen just to the right of the fireball erupting from Tower 2 (southern tower) is more difficult to ascribe to anything we are familiar with, but our suspicion is that the object(s) may be the engine(s) from UAL Flight 175/Boeing 767 which, because of their mass, penetrated through the building well ahead of the fireball and other parts of the aircraft.

We express our profound sympathy to the many thousands of individuals whose loved ones perished in this tragedy. We support our government in its attempt to hold the perpetrators of this crime accountable for their actions, no matter what must be done to apprehend them, and no matter how long it takes to do so.
