The original headline on the piece read, "Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State's "terrorist-in-chief" dies at 48" - but was replaced at some point Sunday with the softer "Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48".
The Post headlined its obituary initially as: "Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State's terrorist-in-chief, dies at 48".
Of course, we should consider that this opinion comes from the same columnist who previously claimed he would rather vote for Josef Stalin, the Soviet dictator whose regime killed tens of millions of its own people, than Donald Trump.
Indian politicians joined the bandwagon on Twitter as well.
Baghdadi's death is the biggest victory for the United States' worldwide anti-terror operations since Navy SEAL forces killed al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan in May 2011.
"Dead at 48"? No-he was cornered by the greatest toughest best military heroes on earth!", Hannity expounded, adding, "How about we killed the evil SOB."

She said that the headline was changed "quickly".
Al-Baghdadi died as a result of a US Special Forces operation in Syria's Idlib province on Sunday.
Interestingly, the obituary itself said of the world's most wanted fugitive: "The man who would become the founding leader of the world's most brutal terrorist group spent his early adult years as an obscure academic, aiming for a quiet life as a professor of Islamic law". "Regarding our al-Baghdadi obituary, the headline should never have read that way and we changed it quickly", the Post's vice president for communications Kris Coratti said in a tweet.
"Religious scholar" was the Post's second version of its headline. A newspaper spokeswoman soon apologized for the headline.
The newspaper amended its headline to call him an "extremist leader".
Meanwhile, Washington Post is not the only publication that has emerged as one of the biggest ISIS sympathisers. "Unfortunately, a headline written in haste to portray the origins of al-Baghdadi and ISIS didn't communicate that brutality".
