BREAKING: Federal government grounds all UPS flights leading many to conspiracies on possible attack | Ben Swann Truth In Media

WASHINGTON, September 11, 2014– According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), all UPS flights were grounded this morning regardless of their destination.

The Air Traffic Control System Command Center (ATCSCC) advisory reads: “Stop all UPS flights regardless of destination.” According to the advisory, UPS was experiencing a computer malfunction, but details remain scarce, which has led some to generate conspiracies regarding a possible terrorist attack.

I still hauled boxes this morning, albeit a bit later than normal. Thought the delay was weather related at the Worldport...

Why? It says "Truth in Media". It must be at least as accurate as all other media.
