Since the enactment of the Case-Javits Amendment, Rhodesia has on the record shown itself ready to commit itself to good faith negotiations with the Patriotic Front under international auspices, while the Patriotic Front has not. The fact that Rhodesia's commitment has not been tested in actual negotiations would seem to be the fault of Britain and the United States, who have declined to convene such negotiations. The President of the United States might properly hesitate to condemn Rhodesia for failing to meet a test he himself refused to administer.
