Having just viewed the video, there's no way that the white dot is a UFO. I'll explain why:
First, it moves with the video. At times when the dot is stationary in the frame, and the aircraft that shot the video is moving, it moves across the
landscape at exactly the same speed. Additionally, when the video shakes, the white dot shakes in perfect unison with the video.
Second, the video changes zoom on several occasions. The white dot is still visible as the screen blacks out for the zoom change. The white dot also
never changes size, which it logically would when the zoom increased or decreased, if was an external object.
Thirdly, seeing the size of the dot as compared to the other buildings in view, that dot couldn't be any larger than a couple feet across (and likely
smaller). If you look closely, before the explosion in the video, you can actually see windows in the buildings. Unless every one of those buildings
has massive picture windows (at 6 feet wide or more), the dot isn't much larger than the windows. It would be assumed that if the object was indeed
an external object, it would be airbourne to move as it does. In that case, it would appear smaller, when in direct comparison to the windows. The
dot is roughly the same size as the windows that are visible, making it, at the most, not more than 40" wide. Even if the far-fetched assumption of
them all being large picture windows is true, the craft is still no larger, at best, than roughly 6 feet.
I don't know anything of the modern aircraft targeting systems, besides what has been shown in news media, so I'm looking at this with the idea that
the entirety of the on-screen display is also an unknown.
Anyone that's recently piloted a military aircraft out there that's capable of providing further info on the targeting systems/on-screen display?
To me, logically, this is less of a UFO than a Delta passenger jet approaching a major airport.
[Edit] It should also be noted that if you look at the link just above the screen captures on the site, it links to a previous article showing photos
of the dead Al Zarqawi. To me, that's more newsworthy than the thought of the white dot being a UFO.
