Mexican officials didn't seem too upset about the bribery claims but after calls from local politicians (and I would suspect some pressure from their US counterparts) the Mexican federal government has decided to investigate the claims.

They have limited their investigation to federal employees, though, so it seems the previous confusion about jurisdiction and responsibility is still in effect.

One local writer's thoughts (you'll probably have to use Google translate unless your Spanish is way better than mine - which wouldn't take much).

And the Wall Street Journal gives a nice collection of sites discussing the topic.
