Yes, it's true. The alleged trip to Mexico City had no association whatsoever with the JFK assassination.
Remember the story: Oswald was sitting in the lunch room on his lunch break, breezing through the paper, when he saw the motorcade route and realized that the President was going to be riding right past the building. So, wahlah! He decided to kill him.
But, there is no way for anyone to claim that, prior to that, he gave any thought to killing Kennedy. Even if he hated Kennedy- and he didn't- he would not have contemplated killing him because: without an opportunity what's the point?
Let's say that John Smith who works at an auto plant in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada hates the leader of New Guinea. Is he going to spend time thinking about killing him? What for? He has no opportunity. And in Oswald's case, the opportunity, presumably, just fell in his lap right near the end, right? Because, he only got the job at the Depository because the kindly neighbor ladies in Irving were sharing tea and crumpets one afternoon, and Linnie Mae Randle mentioned to Ruth Paine that they were still hiring at the Book Depository. In late September 1963, Oswald could not have had any thought at all about killing Kennedy, which means no discussions about it with anybody. And that's why I say that Oswald's alleged trip to Mexico City had nothing whatsoever to do with the JFK assassination.
And what's really strange about it is that they would ask him about it at the very first interview.
Two men had been brutally murdered, and a third had been seriously injured in two separate shooting incidents. That's a lot to talk about. Doesn't it seem like at that first interview they would have focused on the crimes for which Oswald was being charged?
How would the Dallas Police know anything about or have anything to do with Oswald going to Mexico City? You know very well that the only reason that came up at the first interview is because the FBI agents (Hosty and Bookhout) brought it up. There is no way Will Fritz would have brought it up if he had conducted the interview by himself.
If Oswald was willing to admit at that first interview that he was the Fair Play for Cuba guy in New Orleans, the whole entire chapter, then why would he deny going to Mexico City to obtain a Cuban visa? What's the difference? Why would he lie about one and not the other?
As Mark Lane told me on the phone: Oswald didn't go to Mexico City. He really didn't.
