Embedding external widgets

I am trying to embed some external widgets in a Visualforce page, with no success.  

 

<apex:page >
    <object codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=5,0,0,0"
    style="WIDTH: 177px; HEIGHT: 125px;" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://time.gov/widget/NISTtimewidget.swf">
    <param name="movie" value="http://time.gov/widget/NISTtimewidget.swf" />
    <embed src="http://time.gov/widget/NISTtimewidget.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
    </embed>
    </object>

    <hr/>

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.widgetserver.com/syndication/subscriber/InsertWidget.js"></script><script type="text/javascript">if (WIDGETBOX) WIDGETBOX.renderWidget('9cbaf4e5-da15-4fff-a1ca-a0fd82c12acc');</script>
    <noscript>Get the <a href="http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/google-search">Google Search</a> widget and many other <a href="http://www.widgetbox.com/">great free widgets</a> at <a href="http://www.widgetbox.com">Widgetbox</a>! Not seeing a widget? (<a href="http://support.widgetbox.com/">More info</a>)</noscript>
    
</apex:page>

 

Neither of these "widgets" display in the page.  However, I can get the first time widget to display if I use:

 

<apex:iframe src=” http://time.gov/widget/NISTtimewidget.swf” />

 What am I missting?
