Turner had this to say on the head-scratching decision to offer condolences for Iranian President Raisi:

“The other head scratching thing that’s happening now that I want to tell you about, just tuning out from the State Department briefing to join you on radio, is that the Secretary of State, the President, are getting a whole lot of push back now because they offered official condolences for the death of Iranian President Raisi. They decry him as this terrible tyrant, a human rights abuser. They accuse him of sponsoring all kinds of militias around the region that are killing U.S. troops, killing Israelis, trying to target U.S. civilians when they can to. And yet, they offered official condolences on the day of his death to the Iranian government and the Iranian people.”
