On Monday, the White House acknowledged the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, describing him as a figure with a controversial legacy.

Despite President Joe Biden’s administration offering condolences, the U.S. highlighted Raisi’s troubling human rights record.


National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters, “Raisi had a lot of blood on his hands,” pointing to his involvement in severe human rights abuses and support for regional proxies like Hamas.

Kirby emphasized that while the U.S. regrets the loss of life and extended official condolences, Raisi’s actions remained a significant concern.

Iran has announced a five-day period of mourning following Raisi’s death in a helicopter crash in a mountainous region under poor weather conditions.

The 63-year-old president, known for his conservative and hardline stance, served nearly three years in office and was considered a likely candidate for re-election next year.

The duality of Washington’s response underscores the complexity of international relations, balancing expressions of sympathy with critical assessments of Raisi’s impact on regional stability and human rights.
