Moving bridge

Killtown has already pointed this out, but I wanted to see for myself, so I captured some screens from the archived footage of ABC-7 in Washington D.C.

Here's Killtown, "Mysterious moving bridge near the WTC":

The bridge moves to the left in the third shot. Perspective does not account for this. Judge for yourself. If I understand Fred's explanation correctly, what is happening is that there are two layers in the video, and the background layer was shifted left with respect to the foreground layer.

If you click on the images they get bigger. Best is to right click and download the images, then view them sequentially with an image viewer like Irfan View (great freeware).

This is really just me confirming this for myself, but if it's useful, here are the screenshots.
