Mouriño and the cartels

Nina, fellow Fulbrighter and researcher on Mexican government policy, has posted her take on the plane crash, with a great summary of the recent (and violent) history between Mouriño, the Mexican Government, and the drug cartels.

With each passing day, I grow more confident that this was just a terrible tragedy.  But as Nina’s discussion shows, the history here is a story in itself…. it’s no wonder that the public has reacted with such skepticism and fear.


México, D.F.


Rather than a new post, I’d thought I’d add on this link: BBC: Mexican authorities rule out a bomb (in English)
