The Washington Post referred to ISIS founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as an “austere religious scholar” in its Sunday obituary for the murderous jihadist.
The headline read, “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.”

Embarrassing and outright propaganda. No longer a question as to their utter contempt for America as they continue their LEAKS, LIES and fake news

WaPo’s actual obit for a terrorist monster:
“austere religious scholar w/ wire-frame glasses”
“Mr. Baghdadi maintained a canny pragmatism”
“Acquaintances would remember him as a shy, nearsighted youth who liked soccer but preferred to spend his free time at the local mosque” pic.twitter.com/XFFBnUsHEO

The Washington Post @washingtonpost makes me sick! Religious scholar? He was a brutal mass murdering wanted terrorist. The anti-American, leftist, and socialist mainstream media is just as much a threat to our country today as was al-Baghdadi! America needs to wake up! pic.twitter.com/oRF2EmulRT

Following condemnation on social media, the leftist newspaper quickly changed the headline to “Extremist leader of Islamic State dies at 48.”
Unbelievably, WaPo notes that al-Baghdadi “dies,” as if by natural causes.
The ISIS leader reportedly blew up himself, two wives, and several children with a suicide vest during a spec ops raid conducted by U.S. forces outside of the Idlib province of Syria.
WaPo’s latest journalistic bungle is just par for the course for the mainstream media.
President Trump announced Baghdadi’s death early Sunday, claiming he “died like a dog.”
