I think regular readers know that I can be skeptical about Colombia-oriented oil company Pacific Rubiales and its related companies. But this sounds like some of the more ridiculous bullshit I have ever come across. (Translation mine)

The ex-vice president of Venezuela, José Vicente Rangel, said the Canadian oil company was involved in the acts he denounced at the start of the month, in which “opposition Venezuelans” signed a purchase contract for 18 warplanes.
“Businessmen with problems with Venezuelan justice living in the United States and people linked to the oil company Pacific Rubiales that operates in Colombia” were involved in the May 27 purchase in San Antonio, Texas (USA), he said.
