George Bush and the Alien
UPDATED ! !
There have been a series of hoaxes in the UFO community of late. So, when I
received an e-mail showing an alien over George Bush's shoulder during a recent Rose
Garden news conference, my first instinct was that the cockroaches of the UFO world
were at it again.
I searched the internet and sure enough, there it was on the original August 31
"Bush weighs in on Mortgage Mess" Reuters video.
It is also on the "PBS NewsHour 20070831 Bush-Bernacki Bailout" video story
probably using the same video feed.
The CNN story video had the same apparent figure in the window.
The best video is provided by John Scheldroup. It is from MSNBC. This is the
full speech and is so good I think an unbiased video analyst could give a good guess
at what is in the window.
A discussion ensued on
UFO Updates related
to this story. Nick Balaskas posted his view of what the "alien" might be -
Could this apparent "alien" actually be a reflected image of a
silver coloured portable CD player/boom box which has stylish
black wraparound speakers that look like eyes? This boom box
seems to be resting on a less reflective (wood?) such as a desk.
See URL for just one such similar mini boom box.
Many new links appeared on the internet as a detailed Youtube production
A Youtube video was posted claiming videos were being pulled
When I posted on UFO
Updates that the "alien" was probably just a reflection off the window John
Scheldroup posted a detailed analysis showing that I might have guessed too soon.

I located the code of the original flash video file (.flv) to be
found within the popup window source at Reuters.
Popup window above which contains flash video
Flash video file from source which must be converted to an AVI
file then decompiled into individual frames.
I worked with Frame800 background lighting

Frame800_2 Zoom plus lighting
Frame800_3 Inverted and enlargement
That's some reflection,
