Washington Post columnist issues correction after claiming Baghdadi not a coward

The Washington Post was forced to issue a correction after columnist Max Boot said Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi was not a coward because he evaded capture by committing suicide.

Boot initially stated in his Monday column that, "The assertion that Baghdadi died as a coward was, in any case, contradicted by the fact that rather than be captured, he blew himself up."

After backlash from people accusing Boot of praising Baghdadi in an attempt to make a dig at President Trump, the Washington Post deleted the line and issued a correction.

"An earlier version of this column included a sentence questioning whether Trump was right to call Baghdadi a coward because he blew himself up," the paper said. "The line was removed because it unintentionally conveyed the impression that I considered Baghdadi courageous."

WaPo: Headline Calling ISIS Leader ‘Austere Religious Scholar’ Was ‘Written in Haste’

'Unfortunately, a headline written in haste to portray the origins of al-Baghdadi and ISIS didn't communicate that brutality'

The Washington Post expressed regret Sunday after running a headline that described ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as a "religious scholar."

The White House announced Sunday that al-Baghdadi killed himself by detonating a suicide vest as U.S. forces raided his Syrian compound.

The Post originally described him in a headline as the "Islamic State's ‘terrorist-in-chief,'" but the headline was changed after publication to "Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48."
