Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Flying drill bit

Around 2pm central time, I was watching the fox cable news on the Iraq war when they were showing a shot from the hotel in Baghdad, Iraq. The camera was fixed on an area of the city not showing anything in particular when suddenly an object flew through the frame. I recognized it and was hoping it would come back again and it did. It was about 8 inches long, silver and thin with 2 small winglets at each end. It appeared to be flexible. It flew in a hap hazard pattern like a fly for a few seconds and then it was gone. I forget the name these are called but it reminded of a drill bit. I was pretty excited as this was my first and only ufo siting.

I have seen photos of them before and will include one similar to what I saw. I wonder if you can buy a tape of that show??
