Stills from a video taken by GAMMA PRESS USA -- showing the twin towers from an east angle -- clearly show an unknown object moving at a 90 degree angle to the second plane's flight path.

Was a military jet following the second plane? Is the object a radar-guided missile that was fired at the airliner -- but arrived seconds late? Is the object a post-event distortion by a GAMMA PRESS editor? Could the image be a giant piece of debris racing toward the horizon?

The mystery surrounding the video intensified in and out of official government over the weekend.

A close examination of the footage appears to first show the object flashed by sunlight -- above the left tower -- a full 10 seconds after impact of the second airliner. The mystery object quickly streeks across the the back of the right tower before swooping down at a rapid clip and out of the camera's frame.

The video featuring the mystery object has so far failed to catch the attention of the nation's main press.

It should be noted that no reports from countless bystanders or other video footage has backed up the GAMMA video, which was running at FOXNEWS.COM as of Sunday evening [ http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,34238,00.html Scroll to: Video, the attack: East angle 2nd plane hits tower.]
