Biden Admin Slammed for 'Odd' Statement on Iranian President’s Death

Biden Admin Slammed for 'Odd' Statement on Iranian President’s Death

The Biden administration issued a "pathetic," "groveling," and "out-of-touch" statement on Monday regarding the Sunday passing of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.

Raisi and others tragically died in a helicopter crash, sparking immediate finger-pointing toward the U.S. over the apparent accident.

Given the White House's policy of "appeasing terrorists," "repressive regimes," and "repugnant figures" like Raisi, the American government's response to the death was predictable.

It was no surprise that the U.S. State Department's "pathetic" "condolences" for Iran's government were met with backlash.

State Department spokesman Matthew Miller's statement expressed, "The United States expresses its official condolences for the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Amir-Abdollahian, and other members of their delegation in a helicopter crash in northwest Iran. As Iran selects a new president, we reaffirm our support for the Iranian people and their struggle for human rights and fundamental freedoms."

While not celebrating Raisi's death, it's noted that every life is valued, even those of repressive figures.

Raisi, nicknamed "The Butcher of Tehran," had a notorious reputation, as noted by The Times of Israel.

The U.S. could have chosen to stay silent about his passing, given Iran's oppressive policies and aggressive stance.

Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons and its menace to its neighbors and the world mean that Raisi's death doesn't significantly change the situation.

Criticism of Miller's statement was widespread, highlighting the controversy over offering condolences for Raisi's passing.

The future leadership of Iran remains uncertain, but the Biden administration's approach may continue with financial support.

Until significant change happens within Iran, it will remain a challenge to freedom and a global pariah.

The need for change extends to leadership in the U.S. to avoid further concessions to enemies and focus on genuine diplomacy.

At least, as of Monday evening, there was no eulogizing of Raisi as anything other than what he was.
