Great, detailed look at the undeniable vertices between the Mexican oil industry and organized crime. Of special interest to readers al norte de la frontera: Much of PEMEX's stolen gasoline, oil, etc. manages to make its way to U.S. markets.

Two exceptional quotes translated:

"The reality, which the government of Felipe Calderon hid, was of much graver dimensions. Throughout, the Cuenca de Burgos oil field were wells for all practical purposes ocuppied by armed commandos, who decide if PEMEX's workers and contractors work or not. Some areas have been converted in to true zones of exclusion."

"By at least 2006, in the American Union (Mexico, Canada, and the US) many consumers purchased gasoline formulated with material originally stolen from PEMEX and traficked with the protection of Mexican drug cartels."

En toda la Cuenca de Burgos habia pozos practicamente ocupados por comandos armados, que eran quienes decidian si los trabajadores de Pemex y sus contratistas podian o no laborar.
